The focal point

Fall is a good time to look at the garden and see what it needs especially when there aren’t so many flowers and fruits to distract you. And it could what are missing are focal points.

Not too many, but in places that need to have a purpose. Pergola to walk through? Provide a focal point as a sort of destination. Ditto where you have a winding path, an arbor or outdoor dining space way off in the distance.

While you’re out there dividing the daylilies and planting cover crops, haul around some of your garden accouterments to new places and see what happens.

DailyMail —Talk about bifurcated carrots, this one has five fingers and a palm. Kind of creepy. The happy face Jalapeno, not so much.
