I have no idea where I got this photo. It could have been a free image from the Internet. something a friend took, or even something I took. All I am sure of is that it isn’t from my yard.
Although the mild climate here lets the nasturtiums go on growing, it seemed unfair to the rest of the Northern hemisphere to offer this pretty annual as a symbol of autumn. Canna and calla lilies, neremes, yarrow, roses, and various kinds of spirea all would be just as inappropriate.
So here you go, enjoy the last of the fall colors before winter sets in and I have to find a beautiful picture of snow. I can guarantee you that it won;t be taken in my garden!
