Autumn in our wildlife garden
Autumn is in full swing in our yard, so we wanted to share some of what's happening. Maybe it will give you some ideas for your own garden! Winter is definitely around the corner, but there are still plenty of beautiful colors, shapes, and textures to enjoy.
Trees like the dogwood (top) get all of the love for their changing colors, but plants like foxglove beardtongue (bottom) show off how pretty the leaves of garden flowers can be!
We like to keep the seed heads of our plants intact through fall and winter, both to feed wildlife and spread the plants around the neighborhood as well as to enjoy their interesting shapes and textures.
We love flowers like asters (top) and goldenrods (bottom) for the pops of color they add to the garden in the fall, but even better, they keep feeding bees and other pollinators through the season.
