Weird weather. Funny fall. Whatever you call it, right now I appreciate the absence of weather while I'm on the road. I'm in Columbia Mo, where my daughter is a journalism student and set to graduate in a month.
Tomorrow we'll be flying/driving/flying to Savannah Ga where she'll be attending grad school come January. During this quick apartment-hunting trip I probably won't have much time for blogging, but I promise to post pictures of any pretty gardens I might come upon.
In the meantime enjoy the last of the "Ya Gotta Love This Plant" videos. This last video features Helianthus "Lemon Queen", a great fall-blooming, carefree native perennial that brings sunny color to your garden while providing food for the bees. I know that it's probably too late to be plant shopping, but put it on your 2011 wish list for sure.
Putting this third video together was more difficult; I learned what they mean by "losing the light" as the days grow shorter. In addition, my sound quality is somewhat spotty. The upside is that I learned so much more about communicating the garden story in a new medium.
Don't be surprised if I take it up a notch by next year. Until then...
