In some places…

…the Autumn plantings are lush and warm!  (I truly wish professional landscapers would take the time to acclimate the mums, remove them from their pots, plant, then give them sufficient water to establish themselves, as these landscapers obviously did.)

Native Grasses and Chrysanthemums

In others…not so much!  (These poor mums, which have only been placed about a week ago (I’m certain they were still in their pots!) are already failing!)

Fading Chrysanthemums

repaint themselves

as gold, rarefied
