My Foggy Garden in October



October was a pretty good month in my garden.
The green color was predominent with splashes of yellow here and there.



The garden looked special in the fog - tranquil and quiet.




Aralia (Fatsia japonica) feels at home here, in the Pacific Northwest.
 It's one of my favorite plants.

Japanese anemone (Wind flower) 'Honorine Jobert'

Lacecap Hydrangea Angel's Blush turned its flowers from white to pink


I was surprised to see several flowers on the Rhododendron 'Honey Butter'.
 I hope it will bloom in spring too.

This dahlia's color doesn't go well with most of my plants, but looks pretty when alone.


The cutting garden is first to surrender to the fall.
Many dry perennials (eupatorium, monarda, verbena, penstemon, etc.) are left for the birds to feed on their seeds.


Shrub roses and salvia still keep some color.





Meadow Rue (Thalictrum rochebrunianum) 


Verbena bonariensis 'Lollipop'

Salvia



Euphorbia graminea 'Diamond frost' looks good even now, at the beginning of November


This birdbath might be the most photographed thing in my garden





Fuchsia in baskets is still blooming


There were many foggy days, mornings and evenings in October this year.
Fog makes everything look different, and I enjoyed strolling through the garden.

    1. Janneke, thanks! I'm waiting for my other maple to turn red. Last year it refused to do it!

  5. One of the things that I love about your garden is how you have screened it with your plantings for privacy. I was thinking that you said that there is a golf course next to it? What is the size of your lot? It feels like it goes on forever!
    Beautiful, as always!

    1. Heather, thank you! One visitor to my garden during our garden tour said the same - that it feels as the garden is bigger than an acre. In reality it's much smaller.

  6. Lovely photos! I think fog brings quietness or softness to the garden. My hostas, too, are ready to lie down for their long winter nap. They are not early risers, awakening in May in my garden. Your garden is beautiful, no matter the season!

  11. Love the spider webs woven into the plants--is that one Virginia Creeper? Luscious! I'm amazed that my Fuchsias are still alive, too--just barely, but still alive!

    1. Beth, it's my Japanese maple in the picture before the last. Fuchsias are doing great right now.... Sometimes, they bloom in December! I have hardy varieties - Double Otto and others. But hanging baskets' fuchsias are blooming too.
