There is a definite chill in the air and it is FABULOUS!!!
A cold front rolled in yesterday and is supposed to stick around for a while. It is so pretty outside right now and feels fantastic.
Before I get to any of the shots I got this morning, I wanted to say a big THANK YOU to J Peterson Garden Design , Rock Rose, and Sharing Nature's Garden for the write up's they did on the nursery!

The 'Grassy Lassie' Aloe is stunning. It has blooms all over it.
The Possumhaw's berries are starting to turn- this is such a very cool tree. The berries turn red (they have just started to turn, they will get more red) and then they drop their leaves so you have these sticks with berries. They are similar to the American Beautyberry which does the same thing but those are purple and look more like little grape clusters (also very pretty).
The Ocotillo is mesmerizing to me. I love the striations on the branches.
The fruit of the Pineapple Guava. I have never tried it but I have heard many people find it tasty. Maybe this year I will give it a go.
The Pyracantha berries are turning as well. Like it or not fall is coming, or is here.... just ask the plants. ( I for one am ready! )
