Norah Leigh Phlox

 I added this pretty Norah Leigh phlox to the garden this spring. A new phlox and a new variegated leaf plant - double delight.

A few leaves have fallen and the nights are getting downright chilly -tonight 10C.  Judging by the colour of these leaves, we should have an abundance of colourful trees this fall.  I've heard that a sunny summer allows the leaves to store more sugar which shows up as more intense reds and oranges in the fall.
