What does it mean to you? Smells and sights and emotions that rise as the days shorten and the temperatures moderate will be different depending on where you live. This is my second Autumn along the coast of Georgia, and I still can’t get over the fact that the leaves aren’t brilliant and the flowers are. At Skidaway Farm, we have planted our cool weather crops.
At Georgia Coastal Botanical Gardens, the Autumn flowers are brilliant.
Their Autumn Fest last week-end was attended by many fine vendors
selling plants – not too late to plant. Color has been on my mind of late. Could it be the vibrant flowers that grow with abandon at the Farm?
Or perhaps two visits to “Monet and American Impressionism” at the Telfair Museum in Savannah that has colored my thinking.
Claude Monet has a way of seeping into your unconscious mind.
The exhibit has influenced my color choices for the pansies and Dianthus I’ve just planted. YES, JUST planted. And the dahlias go on and on. It is Autumn here on Coastal Georgia after all!
