In Our Yard: October's Beautyberry, Rose Hips, and Sasanqua

This afternoon the boys and I toured Robert and Debbie's yard to see what October looks like in their neck of the woods. Come along to see for yourself. Thanks to Debbie for the photos and plant information! 

Fall leaves pop against this weathered fence post. 

The Camellias Sasanqua creates stunning blooms in the fall. 

Commonly used in herbal tea, Rose Hips provide a nice reddish-orange color. 

American Beautyberry is native to South Carolina and adds a vibrant purple to landscapes this time of year. 

The chickens are always a favorite stop when we're outside at Debbie's. These girls lay great eggs and pair perfectly with the mums during their fashion shoot. 

We're thankful for the past couple of rainy days lately but are looking forward to more fall (sunny) weather. Park Seed Company has some helpful information about yard tasks for October and other fall months. Read here to learn more.
