I like these things.

The gap in the trees where the old oak once stood. This opening changed the backyard this year. It allowed me to plant more sun loving plants.



One of those plants is this grass. I lost the tag. Bad gardener.



I just love the robust delicacy.



Pokeweed thrives.



In a shadier spot, the recent rains have brought color back to the garden.



The temperatures are decidedly fall like. It's 63 degrees. More rain from the Tropics heading this way on Wednesday night. We can use it. I won't complain. Today it was sunny and nearly 80 degrees. The dogwoods are starting to turn.

Tom, I love that first picture with the break in the tree line.

This has been the year of poke. I have cut some tree-size.

Have a great day.

Yesterday was a gorgeous Fall day here. Love your no name grass too. Kind of looks like the Muhly(sp) grass...

I love looking at the shapes the opening in trees make. Especially at night around a bonfire.

Love the grass...I'm guessing Pennisetum 'Moudry'...maybe 'Red Head'.
