Today's wide shot of the front yard shows an unnamed volunteer Pennisetum ornamental grass blooming next to the yucca by the mailbox. This plant seeded itself from my neighbor's yard and the bonus is learning this type of grass does very well in the front yard. I've tried growing ornamental grasses in this spot with mixed results and with this volunteer doing so well here I might try others in the future.
In my October wide shot post I added a shot of the back yard circle garden and it's looking so good right now. This time I've included the golden Salvia madrensis blooming in the foreground. The biggest difference is the buffalo grass has greened up with the fall rains.
As I did last year, I'll plan an Autumn wrap-up series on my garden soon. You can check out all the wide shots of blogger's gardens in Heather's wide shot post.
