Today’s photos are from Constance Hoge. She says, “I live in Westminster, Maryland. That’s the middle of the state, and they just upped our zone from 6B to 7A.
“I have about 1/3 acre, in town. My bent is toward native plants, though not exclusively. Trees are my passion. I quit mowing the back half of my yard 3 summers ago and have an ever-changing progression of native perennials and biennials back there.
“I have been gardening here since 1994, in rocky clay-loam up on a ridge. We get hot and dry, dry, dry in the summer. I’m always looking for fall color and have succeeded pretty well at that.”
