Efterår i Tim's Ohio have

Agastache 'Apricot Sprite'

 

Tim Vojt out in Columbus, Ohio. "These are just a few garden moments that I particularly liked this past summer. There's some crazy, clashing color combinations, but I really like them."

Day 2 in Tim Vojt's Columbus, Ohio, garden! Today he says, "In addition to planting more flowers attractive to hummingbirds, I've been focusing on adding plants to the gardens that are food sources for butterflies. Besides the native Asclepias syriaca, the giants among which I am standing in the photo, I've added several other species of milkweed to attract Monarch butterflies. This is the first year that I've met with success: there were several batches of Monarch caterpillars. I also planted dill, bronze fennel and parsley as food plants for Black Swallowtail butterflies and had many, many caterpillars as well. I planted both flat leaf and curly leaved parsley. The butterflies passed over the more attractive curly leaved variety for the flat leaved. You'll have to take a really close look to see the Black Swallowtail chrysalis on the parsley photo. I really liked the foliage of all of these plants in the garden, so I didn't feel I had to sacrifice aesthetics in order to provide food for hungry caterpillars. Of course, having a garden that attracts caterpillars also attracts predatory insects and birds. Many-a-caterpillar met its Maker before becoming a beautiful, winged creature."

A third and final (for now) day in Tim Vojt's garden in Columbus! Today he says, "I really don't have a lot of winter interest in the garden, although I am slowly trying to remedy that. I've never planted ornamental Kale before, but I think it will become a tradition. Fall was not especially colorful here, but a lot of annuals kept on flowering late into the season. The hummingbirds loved the old-fashioned red Salvia and I did, too. In the fall, the sun would strike the red flowers just right as I arrived home from work: they positively glowed!"
