Fall Pictures From Beech Island

Gardening is thinking ahead a few minutes, a few months or a few generations.  There’s something about this little spot of red dirt, perched on the wooded hills above the river, with Augusta, Georgia, making noise and light in the distance, that helps people find peace and think in generations.

    Your hyacinth bean is a more vivid purple than I have grown . Is it a named variety? Love the arrangement.

      No, just plain old hyacinth bean. I wonder if it is weather — I start seeds in the ground near the end of July, they don’t flower until Oct. 1 or so and they are still up today….could be cool weather.

    Jenks, I love the use of the Baccharis halimifolia in your arrangement! Does it hold up well? Lots of rain here in Atlanta, would love some fall blue sky days.

      Erica, Bacharis has a huge problem as a cut flower; after about a week, zillions of little puffy helicopters start flying around the house! So we only use it for events — and for those it’s free and dramatic!
