Fall Flowers

Autumn Joy Sedum, yes it is a joy in autumn!
The leaves are beginning to change and we just need some sparkling sunshiny days like today, to have as oohing and aahing with delight at the colours.
I went to Ottawa on the weekend and it was cold!  The weekend was wet so the colours were muted and have not changed fully yet. Predominately yellow was seen. I did get some wonderful home grown cabbage,  squash, carrots, onions, beets and potatoes from my sister's garden.  The Thanksgiving meal will be delicious.

The garden changes so much this time of year, but still has its charms. A new one for me is the dahlia. I've always liked them but could never be botherd to plant the bulbs.  This time I purchased one from the garden club already planted. I didn't know what colour it was or indeed how big it would grow, but it sure is splendid!
