Purple Fall

FALLS VILLAGE, Connecticut: In New England we are used to the reds oranges and yellows of the fall, but an unexpected hue caught my eye this year. Here is a catalog of some late blooming purples around my neck of the woods…


Salvia? (I can’t remember now…)


Monks Hood


Aster (growing wild roadside!)

Aster (domesticated, in my garden!)

Ornamental Basil

Fuscia (actually a house plant round these parts, or zone 10.)
