Autumn Equinox found me at a garden center. The traditional planting of pansies in pots is here. Photos will follow soon. In the meantime, one of my favorite grasses has started to open, Pink Muhly grass. I have a collection of five next door and one is way ahead of the others. Fortunately, the center point plant is the one in bloom. These have been a bit tricky for me. They are in a dry area and this is their second autumn here. The two that bloomed last year aren't showing any signs of blossoms yet. Fingers crossed that all five will have flowers soon. One day this will be mesmerizing when the sun sets.
I tried a geometric pattern with these grasses.
Pink Muhly Grass on Autumn Equinox 2017
8:44 p.m. We realized the plants were still in the car and stepped outside to put them in the garden. An owl is hooting. I haven't heard that in months. Earlier we had a glass of chardonnay on the patio of Dale's Indian restaurant and good conversation with our very interesting and personable waiter while waiting for our take out. A beautiful crescent moon was shining on our way home. Perfect first autumn night.
