Re: autumn dusk

Do you live in country that's flat or
Pretty much flat here. Near suburbs, but not as much artificial light as in town. I guess that's why I was so impressed by sharp, rich colors. Not expected.

Toadlilies still looking good. The waxy yellow T. mac v. mac is still going strong. T. Myazaki looking utterly fantastic with fully blooming cascades of flowers.

Planted some nice dark red lilies for next year. A 4-6 ft orienpet, Rossellini. and a shorter Asiatic, Monte Negro. I hoped that planted together it would give the impression of a longer bloom period.

I love that intense light at dusk. Do you live in country that's flat or
hilly? I grew up in a mountain valley & had never really experienced dawn or
dusk on a prairie until I was driving through Southern Idaho to visit
friends. I was blown away by that flat intense light.
I planted a little group of snapdragons this spring that are just gorgeous
now. I hope they come back in the spring. They often do here.
Saffron crocus are starting to bloom also. Maybe I will actually harvest &
use the threads this year.
Still off work with this cold & bronchitis. I'd like to get a flu shot soon,
but it wouldn't be as effective with all this going on, so I'll hold off
another week or two.
Hope you are all staying well & enjoying autumn.

TG for daylight savings time.  I can still get a few things done b4 dark.
It's 7:20 and dark is settling, but a few moments ago I was just finishing
pulling some dead ivy off the fence for tomorrow's trash pickup.  Racing
against the clock, I carried a bag to the front and I was amazed at how
rich the colors of the flowers were at dusk.  Different from summer dusk.
Intense.  Wow.  Anemone Bodnant Burgandy against Euphorbia Tasmanian
Tiger. The changing colors on a Viburnum.  Amazing.  And that unstoppable
perennial Snapdragon Dulcinea.  Her rose and yellow flowers just glow!
