I only planted these fall asters (Symphyotrichum oblongifolium) this spring but they are abuzz with happy bees this month, full of brightly purple blooms.
In an apparently classic Texas garden move, I have a couple of Mexican mint marigold near my asters, and another providing contrast with this variegated agave. I'm fine with borrowing what works!
Blue plumbago in a pot- a proud survivor of both the summer heat and hungry hens!
Ripening berries on my yaupon holly (Ilex vomitoria) lending fall color.
I hope everyone's enjoying fall!
