September and October have been moist and a bit cooler, perfect weather for making troughs. I think I've made ten or so since Labor Day, including these two Helsinki troughs. I'd like to make a grouping of them in my yard for planting in the spring. I sold these two yesterday at our local rock garden club meeting so I'll be making more in November.

Frankenia laevis, a new plant for me this year. I love its delicate reddish coloring this time of year. It should spread next year to make a cascading mat with white or pink flowers.
