Autumn Joy

I have a Sedum called Autumn Joy.  Last winter was real hard on it but it still had a couple of blooms.

Sedum Autumn Joy

Usually it is covered in bees in the fall…not so much this year.

Another joy of autumn is the Tamarack trees or “Larch”  they are a deciduous conifer.  It means they lose their needles and grow new ones next spring.  The go through the winter totally naked and dead looking.

That last golden hour of sunlight in the evening illuminates the golden trees.

  2. I love any shot with a road in it and Ashley's road is lovely! Your sedum is really pretty and I wonder if it is already too cold for the bees.

  9. When there is a picture with a road in it, one can almost transport into the picture for a drive in the country. The trees are beautiful, as is the sedum.

  10. Hi Connie, Checking in...I love your new header photo. The trees and the AJ Sedum are so pretty. We always had such good luck with the sedums. Don't have any now. We've had LOTS of rain the past few days.. Hi to FG and Chance.

  11. We had almost no bees on the Autimn Joy sedum this year, and not many last year, either. Very sad. Nice photos...I like tamaracks but wasn't familiar with the term "larch." Always learning something from you, Connie! .

  13. I've had some shots of trees behind up, as the sun is almost down, glowing so brightly they look like they are on fire. It would have been lovely to drive past your trees!
    Funny, I just bought two little Autumn Joy plants today:) I planted three plants in Oliver two years ago exactly. They have done really well with the lack of watering. I think the two new ones will be planted here.
