The leaves are too pretty to rake. I'll wait, and then sweep them into the garden. There is so much colour this time of year.
Blooming now: standard hydrangea, toad lily, sedum, phlox, nasturtium, tovara, and late roses. The perennials in my garden are in the purple/rose spectrum. The nasturtium match the colours of the fallen leaves, yellow, orange and red. Still lots and lots of green.
