It was another glorious fall day here in Portland, Oregon, although the morning started out foggy and chilly. The sun emerged before noon and the sky was a gorgeous crystal blue - the sort that only happens in the fall.
It was a day of catching up with various paperwork and calls, but I got the chance to prowl around the garden with my camera. I found the Strawflowers still blooming (Xerochrysum bracteatum) alongside this lovely rainbow-colored Euphorbia. I don't know the cultivar - the tag is in the potting shed outside (in the dark...darned time change!) But I think it makes a lovely color combination.
The extra is of the last of the Black-Eyed Susans (Rudbeckia fulgida var. sulvantii) in the back garden. The clumps in the front garden where there is greater exposure have all succumbed. How lovely to have these bright spots in the November garden!
It looks like we'll have lovely fall weather through Saturday...who knows what will happen after that!
