Baby girl is 2 today and the first frost is on the pumpkin. I still have a lot to do in the vegetable garden but it won’t be happening this weekend. A road trip to Manhattan is planned. My Six this week highlight the colour red.
1. Knockout rose. A grocery store bargain that continues to flower reliably all season long.
2. Zinnia Queen Red Lime is finally starting to bulk up. They are too subtle and wispy for my taste. I’m going back to my old favourite ‘Benary’s Giants’ next year.
3. Ruby Chard. Pretty as any flower. Intermingled with beets.
4. Fruit of Cornus Kousa
5. Ilex Verticilata – Winterberry. Deciduous holly loaded with berries this year.6. Viburnum Trilobum luminous red against a backdrop of still-green maples.
