Today’s photos are from Carl Zambella Mudra in Malvern, Pennsylvania.
It was a lovely late October day after a number of gloomy days. I used to be busy within the garden and even prolonged the bed as I needed a house for shrubs I didn’t know fit elsewhere! The last trees and shrubs got here in today, but I still have loads of bulbs to plant.
I planted a whole lot of bulbs and enjoyed the late roses.
Black-eyed Susans (Rudbeckia fulgida, zones 3-9) and Nippon daisies (Nipponanthemum nipponicum, zones 5-9) proceed to bloom.
The primary witch hazel (Hamamelis virginiana, Zones 3-8) is blooming.
My seven-sided tree (Heptacodium miconioides, Zones 5-9) is finally mature enough to bloom, and the pinnate reddish flowers are truly unique.
Tea camellia (Camellia sinensis, Zones 6–9) also blooms. It’s called “Sochi”.
Marty Long continues carving the tree and the woodpecker has just emerged from the forest. The owl is sort of complete and a few of its kittens are slowly joining the fox. Two squirrels are chasing one another on the trunk, and in addition a raccoon! It sculpts and becomes more beautiful with each passing day.
I believe we’re here in peak color, and the intense red of several Japanese maples (Acer palmatum, Zones 5-9) combined with glistening yellows blends with the beech (Fagus grandifolia, Zones 3-9) and the hickory (Carya sp.) Trees .
The good yellow autumn color of Japanese maple looks beautiful framing a Buddha statue against the background of a tree trunk.
But remember the fabulous tapestry of reddish shades that’s now my Franklin tree (Franklinia alatamaha, Zones 5-8).
A path made from cut logs invites you to find the great thing about the autumn garden.
