Like stars upon some gloomy grove,

231012saxifrage

We’ve been living inside a cloud here for the past few days. Most plants look pretty sad. Yet at the end of October, the starry flowers of this little saxifrage come to cheer me up. The plant has loved the wet summer and the foliage has been a joy: rounded, scalloped leaves, which are a shiny green on top and red underneath. I have it planted just where I can see it from a window. This is the only way to enjoy the garden at the moment.
