The slanted rays and dropping temperatures makes me really love fall. Is it me, or is the light more yellow than in summer? It certainly seems like it. Anyway, for this foliage day, I want to celebrate the big leaves in my garden. The ones that tower overhead, filter light and act as a foil for shadow play. The ones that make parts of the garden feel like a gothic cathedral. Think Cannas, Palms, Fatsias and Tree ferns – that kind of thing.
I could go on, but I’m not going to. Maybe by next year, my Tetrapanax will hopefully have risen above the commoners and will give me some of its glow. I really do love fall. Gardens really are so much about light and placement. For now, I’m savoring the time we have left, before frost sinks its teeth into us all.
