October in the Garden

Fall has begun in October! Leaves, leaves and more leaves are changing color and falling in slow motion in my garden.

Nothing like beautiful fall leaves in red, peach and gold.  These photos were taken by my daughter Anjali.

Our strawberry tree is doing stupendous this year. Dripping with hundreds of fruit, this bush is thriving.  I love how beautiful these little strawberry fruit look. They start off a golden yellow and turn a ruby red.  Absolutely gorgeous.

Begonias, geraniums, nasturtiums and cyclamen blooming in our cool fall weather.

Made a few cuttings of succulents to give as party favors at our upcoming Diwali party.

Did some major cleanup in the garden. Removed a bunch of tea tree bushes and giant grasses that were crowding my olive trees. I can now see the gnarly gorgeous trunks of these beautiful olive trees.

  1. Oh, those red maple and aspen leaves are exquisite. The sweetgums are coloring splendidly as well, but aspens and maples are uncommon. The native cottonwoods (related to aspens) and maples do not color as well.
