Sedum "Autumn Joy" buffet.

The garden has reached its final stages of growth as Jeff Calton enjoys the final moments before the season turns.

"I can not believe it is Labor Day!  The garden has reached it's peak and all has become lush , full and brimming over with no more real growth for this season.  Get out there and enjoy the garden this weekend as deconstruction and tear downs of containers will start in September moving into fall."
