With daylight hours diminishing, and evening chill settling in, the garden’s hues are changing quickly now. Leaves are taking on autumnal tints of red, orange and chartreuse and berries are brightening to shades of wine, purple, vermillion and cherise. It’s brilliant, beautiful and always just a bit melancholy as summer’s bright heat gives way to the glowing embers of autumn.
