Fall color in the North Carolina mountains is becoming apparent. At mid-elevations along the Blue Ridge Parkway, the color is spectacular. Higher up, it's still early; lower down, drought stress may diminish the usual clear yellows, defaulting to brown.
Hemlocks are gray ghosts, felled by woolly adelgids
But yesterday, it was spectacular north of Devil's Courthouse and Graveyard Fields.

About this blog
Our gardens (now solely in the mountains of NC) have been increasingly home to native plants, birds, small mammals, and insects of all sorts. My gardening companion (my husband) is equally the gardener in our gardens. Woody, our rescue Golden, puts his own stamp on our gardens. He follows his previous fellow goldens (and my former gardening assistants): Mocha and Chessie. They bring life to our gardens.
