I think gardens in the fall are at their peak. That last gasp of of green growth before hybernation. An entire garden in my favorite color, orange, bathed by the BEST light of the harvest sun. What is it about the sun in the fall? It seems to burst with orange fire. I find that after years of designing gardens, that the test of a good design is how it looks in the fall. It’s easy to make a garden look good in the summer…so much color, so many vibrant shapes and lush greens. But to make a garden look good in the Fall means that the architecture and textures of the garden must be rich and full. There is little cheating in a fall garden design.
