    A lovely way to show all your foliage Cathy!

  2. readerbuzz says:

    I think my favorite is the foliage of the moss. Great variety in your garden.

    Here’s my Wordless Wednesday.

  3. Christina says:

    I had to scroll a long way before I found the autumn colour I was expecting. Love the combination of colour and form in the first image.

    • Cathy says:

      I was surprised myself, Christina, that apart from the witch hazels that have coloured up and lost their leaves there is not much in the way of autumn colour other than green – although still lots of leaves!

  4. Chloris says:

    I love your foliage collage Cathy. A lovely way to display it.

  5. Love the green and subtle fall shades…

  6. Sheryl says:

    Beautiful collection!

  7. rickii says:

    One word: luscious.

  8. Pauline says:

    You have a lovely selection of leaves Cathy, the gales brought so many leaves down, we are lucky to have any left for Foliage Day!

    • Cathy says:

      When I took the photos of leaves on the ground I did pause and notice the variety of them, and the relative position they had swirled into. Will need to think about sweeping them up soon…!

    Love it when the perennials turn red too, like your Ceratostigma.

  10. I love the ivy and bark Cathy, the light coming through the fern leaves is beautiful, nicely captured with the black grass, Frances

    That Ophiopogan is nice Cathy. I mention ivy today in my foliage post. Is it ever invasive where you live? It grows in many of the old Chapel Hill neighborhoods.

    • Cathy says:

      It could be, if you ignore it. I just pull it out once it starts rooting where I don’t want it – but I love it because it’s always there, always green, and provides instant maturity once it gets going.

  12. That ceratostigma has gorgeous autumn colour! I love the foliage combo in that first photo. And isn’t mature ivy a thing of beauty?

    • Cathy says:

      Yes, I love it, Janet. We do have lots of different ivies throughout the garden and apart from the occasional stern talking to we get on OK.

  13. Anna says:

    Oh that cerotostigma is most eye catching Cathy. Can’t quite work out whether it is growing in a pot or is planted. Janet has pipped me to the post with her comment on your first photo 🙂

  14. bittster says:

    The back of that fern sure is something, and it looks great with the grass. You put together quite a nice foliage collection and I’m surprised by all the green too 🙂

  15. What a great collection of foliage! I especially enjoyed the first shot–with the green and dark foliage together.

  16. A tapestry of textures! Lovely!
