Dream Garden, Switzerland

There are places in the world where, late in the season, you can easily discover a lush, colorful dream of a garden. Our weather has finally turned cooler. A few days of rain and mist are greening up the crispy crabgrass in the side yard. The ambient light reminds me of a cottage garden glimpsed one misty day in Switzerland. It was tidy and colorful. The Swiss are proud of their asters---so many asters, in every color, size and type, standing tall amidst the roses and chrysanthemums. I feel so lucky to have seen it. Now it is in my head forever, the perfect fantasy of a cool weather garden.
