Today's photos are from Viktoria Mullin in Cromwell, Connecticut. She says, "I couldn’t resist sharing my autumn garden with you. I’m so happy and proud of myself and my plants! Believe or not in the spring 2010 there was nothing but a flat grass landscape here. The idea to install the fence and plant flowers around it had come into my mind in early spring. I made the plan, and we bought the fence at Lowe’s and installed it ourselves. I spent the whole summer of 2010 planting and maintaining. So, this year I got an abundance of blossoms and an uncounted number of beautiful photographs." Thanks, Viktoria, for sharing this with us--it's beautiful!

Viktoria sent along some plant IDs:
Mums (Chrysanthemum cvs., annual)
'Autumn Joy' sedum (Sedum 'Autumn Joy', Zones 3-8)
'Karley Rose' fountain grass (Pennisetum orientale 'Karley Rose', Zones 6-10)
Montauk daisies (Nipponanthemum nipponicum, Zones 6-10)
