"The enjoyment of scenery employs the mind without fatigue and yet exercises it; tranquilizes it and yet enlivens it; and thus, through the influence of the mind over the body gives the effect of refreshing rest and reinvigoration to the whole system." -Frederick Law Olmsted
In other words...nature nurtures! Frederick Law Olmstead is considered the father of American landscape architecture. He co-designed Central Park in New York City and other park systems. He is locally renown for designing the grounds at the Biltmore Estate.

|FROM WILMA: Allen Lacy, author of The Garden in Autumn, refers to autumn as a “time of sweet disorder”. As fall begins there is a beauty in “sweet disorder”. Untidy gone-to-seed flowers with birds feeding on them, butterflies lazily flitting about on overgrown zinnias, and floppy asters and goldenrod are part of this beauty.|
Some of my container gardens are still presentable but soon basil and other herbs need to be harvested, annuals removed, and plantings refurbished. Lettuce, greens, kale, pansies, and other cool-tolerant plants will provide color as well as salads into late fall. Mixed plantings of perennials like heuchera, grasses, and small evergreens make good wintertime container gardens.
Autumn is definitely the time of pumpkins that add so much to fall décor as well as make us hungry for pumpkin pie, etc. Some of you have asked which are best for cooking. Pumpkins, winter squash, and gourds are all members of the same family (Cucurbitaceae). Most of the pumpkins can be eaten but the smaller pie pumpkins are probably best. Many of the more decorative ones are actually winter squash and are edible.
A Songbird in My Garden
Zoom Online Workshop
Sat. Oct. 16 at 10 am
With Chris Davenport on Zoom
Songbirds fill the garden with life and beauty! One garden at a time, let's create environments that nurture and sustain them!
Consider humankind’s age-old love affair with birds. Looking back and moving forward – we’ll discuss our relationship with birds – their allure, how the past choices have led to dramatic declines in bird populations, and most importantly, how our choices today...read more and register.
|HOUSEPLANTS: Nighttime temperatures are below 50 degrees. Bring your houseplants inside now - before they start to pout or (worse) die from cold exposure. Inspect your plants thoroughly for insects and disease, and treat if needed, before bringing them inside.|
LAWNS: Seed new cool season lawns (fescue & bluegrass) in September. The most successful time to seed and overseed lawns is in the fall. You can also fertilize with a slow-release fertilizer during September, October, and November. Apply lime to lawns and vegetable garden if needed.
PANSIES: Pansies planted now will root in well and become nicely established.
VEGGIES: Plant your fall garden. Be sure to harvest your sweet potatoes before frost, and harvest tender herbs, especially basil, before frost.
