A Very Different View

 The old Rose Garden at Ault Park is now a pair of double borders along a large grass lawn. A few days ago the brown soil and foliage revealed just a few hints of what awaits us this season. Soon the border gardens will tower over me (I am 6'1"). The gardens' palette is an ever changing display of flowers, textures and foliage.






Before the grasses and roses are cut back in late fall, the garden is still a beautiful picture of coppers, golds, soft browns and tans. The movement of the grasses adds life to the garden.





Early autumn; the setting sun accentuates the gold and tans starting to creep into the garden as summer takes a final curtain call.
