What a wonderful autumn. The fact that we’ve even had an autumn is in itself amazing. It’s rare for us to have a whole month of moderate weather before winter arrives. The cooler temperatures are perfect for some plants.
To be honest, all of these pictures were taken before the hard freeze we had last night. So this represents cool days in general.
Bear with me as I try to catch a butterfly with wings open long enough to get a shot.
When I planted this White Mist or White Boneset (Eupatorium havanense) in the spring, I was hoping it would have a strong aroma like my friend’s. Unfortunately, there doesn’t seem to be any scent. But it is finally blooming and drawing butterflies and bees. It is a Texas native that blooms in the fall.
