After seven years, my garden is still getting established so I don’t have as much color from a distance as some landscaped yards. Although every year, I see a little more potential in the autumn colors here at Fishtail Cottage.
As each year passes, the color of autumn is more and more pronounced. I have added more and more maple trees every year to help with seeing some beauty this time of year. The Coral Bark Maple hast begun to turn over this past week.
Another beautiful ‘unnamed’ maple in the landscape brings some gorgeous red color to the garden. I grew this pretty tree from seed!
The Burning Bush Shrub is absolutely gorgeous this time of year. Look how pretty it is next to the lilac shrub just behind it…
You can see the color changes a little better here in this photo…I wish I could fast-forward ten years to see what this area of the garden will look like! Part of the enjoyment of the garden is the time that is put into it, so I will have to be patient to see my vision! A few snapshots to share with you of the garden…it’s been dark and foggy here, so you’ll just have to imagine what it would look like when the sunshine bounces off the leaves.

Also, I just updated my Etsy store with reduced pricing on many of my items! But most excited to share that I have added a Shabby Chic 2014 Fishtail Cottage Garden Calendar so that others can enjoy my garden year round…limited supply available. Click here to be taken to my shop…
