It's the first of October and I'm joining Heather at Xericstyle to show a wide view of my garden. At the beginning of each month Heather invites bloggers to show the big picture so readers can follow our garden progress.
It's interesting to compare with my last wide shot post at the beginning of September when the shadows were quite different. The bright Autumn Sage or Salvia greggii is now blooming along the street.
For October I'm adding a view of the circle garden in the backyard. The ornamental grasses aren't blooming yet, but now the intense summer heat has broken so I'll soon be showing a lot more of this garden.
The buffalo grass lawn is beginning to green up after the rain last week. Buffalo grass is interesting in that it was brown and literally crunchy before the rains. Instead of growing new blades, the existing grass blades turn from brown to green with the moisture. I've made a note to research how that happens.
So go ahead, join Heather, and post a few wide shots of your yard too.
