Remember this summery shot from Labor Day when I was bringing in the house plants?
This is the same shot, taken 2 days later. Notice the difference?
Yes, some of the same plants are still there. But I have brought in others to emphasize the autumnal colors of fall–the dark purple of the sweet potato vine, the dark stripes on my two banana plants, the fall-like colors in the crotons.
It’s a subtle shift, but it helps pick up the burgundy stems of the begonias that are nearby, and the red Japanese maple.
As we transition into autumn, how can you move some plants around to take advantage of the changing seasons?
