We have started collecting penstemons as the hummingbird population is much larger here and in need of more entertainment and 'territory' for each bird. This year was the first I experienced territorial battles between hummingbirds.


We have managed to collect a few different colors, and hope they settle well into our sunny slope that has just been finished. See them by clicking on the flower to the left.


At a later time, when I have confirmed names, I will add them to the blog, but in the meantime I wanted to share our fall colors.

Along with the chrysanthemums, we usually have a few fall pansies around our entrance. As the pots were constantly being moved for driveway construction this fall, planting in the ground hasn't been an option.
