The garden looks like a fall garden now - full of the beautiful colors we associate with this season. We had a bit of rain two weeks ago and some annual wildflower seeds have germinated - probably not good, since we still can expect at least another 3-4 weeks of hot weather.
Quite a few birds in the garden eating. We've planned several fall pruning sessions (see the calendar). We'll prune to retain the bird's food for as long as possible (see our November, 2014 posting on Life-friendly Fall Pruning). These pictures are from 9/27/15.

|Some fruits on the Toyon espalier already have some color|
|A little rain made everything fresh and clean again|
|Who says fall gardens have no color (or green)?|
|The garden awaits the start of the rainy season|
|We'll do some pruning in the Garden of Health as well.|
