#November #Colorado #FineGardening

I’m Bonnie Phipps Moninger from Boulder, Colorado, and those pictures had been taken in November 2021. I’ve been gardening since 2006 in Boulder and had by no means observed our fall colours so stunning in our lawn (Zones 4–5), and it lasted means into November.

garden with golden ornamental grass and dry hydrangea bloomsThe Eastern woodland grass (Hakonechloa macra, Zones 5–9) grew to become any such stunning copper and had been accentuated by means of the bronze of the ‘Annabelle’ hydrangea heads (Hydrangea paniculata ‘Annabelle’, Zones 3–9) and the darkish maroon of the PJM rhododendrons (Zones 4–8). The scene took my breath away. This was once the primary 12 months I planted rhododendrons, which might be arduous to develop in Colorado, and I used to be overjoyed to peer the autumn colour in their leaves.
