After today the plunge into winter begins. Daylight falls under twelve hours. The sun angles change.
Since leaves turning are a big part of the enjoyment of fall in upstate New York, I want to bring you some variegated leaves from the flower gardens my spouse and I maintain in our small city yards. these are ornamental, not tree, leaves.
I concentrate so much on the flowers, I forget about the leaves. I took these pictures yestserday, on the last full day of summer.
I am grateful for these plants - iresene, in the front.
Calibrachoa (I think it may be Celebration Sun)
Lantana Stephanie - it loved our hot summer (and that is continuing into fall).
The bloom season of this euphorbia is more into the spring but the variegated leaves carry on all summer.
Farewell, summer. Hello, autumn.
