Fall at Winterberry Farm
I have been running around for the last couple of weeks taking pictures of my gardens this fall. Both front and back yards are basically 'grassless' with only a few strips of grass for our Maya so she doesn't get too wacky! Walking through the leaves and scuffling my feet brings back good memories of huge piles of leaves that we would play in as children before my dad raked the leaves up and put them in the compost. Trips to both sets of grandparents homes meant going home to the farm. Being born and raised in West Virginia, I can remember the wonderful crisp weather in the fall and the fun we had running amok on the farm! What happened to those days? Was it the need for everyone to have the 'perfect' lawn? Maybe we are all a bit too anxious and busy these days - oh well - please enjoy my version of 'leaf peeping'. If you are interested in having great fall color in your gardens and yards - let me know and I will post info on the best trees, shrubs and herbaceous plants for fall color in your neck of the woods!
