I found this Pretty sedge (prairie fire, below left) while wandering the garden center and decided to have an Autumn pot of plants on the front porch.
The grass has lovely yellow and bronze tips.
The pansys seemed to say *take me home, I am just the
right color you are looking for.*
Not to be outdone the coral Diascia also called my name.

5 Galanthus, or I think they are also called snowdrops, are now in the SHADE garden.
50 Easter baskets assorted tulips planted among THESE plants in the front garden.
30 Allium of assorted colors were also planted in THIS garden
7 blueberry frosting tulips for the Blue/purple yellow garden. I just love the eyecatching petals of these blooms.

Just so the rabbits won't be able to dig the bulbs up, I placed chicken wire over the bulbs before adding another layer of compost.
The little stinker just had to come and investigate but soon hopped off when he found out he could not dig through the chicken wire.

I have spent time these last two days spreading compost over three gardens I have. The leaves on some of the trees are starting to change color. Some of the flowers are past their best, while others are still beautiful.
