Fall's Holdouts

More holdouts in my gardens. After an early spring everything is at least three weeks earlier fading, dying back and going to seed.  The black eyed susans have re-seeded all over from previous summers, and they keep the garden looking alive in the middle of the usual fall mess and detritus. The Russian sage  and catmint always revive themselves, too, in the cooler weather. An even though I hate how the goldenrod falls over on my pink phlox every summer, and I have to tie it up and trim it back, its bright yellow spires are so pretty right now - and they just glow in the late afternoon sunshine.
