It was such a beautiful fall. We lingered in the warmth; we admired the still blooming flowers. Then boom… it got cold.. .real cold. So the clean-up is still not done. I cut back most of the stuff that gets mushy – irises and daylilies. But there is still much to do
Most of what is left is the woody stuff, and I will leave some of that until spring.
The meadow got mowed just in time
Although the flowers are gone, the frost on the foliage is delightful
Decorative globes shine in the morning light
This is another reason to grow Epimedium – wonderful color on the foliage in late autumn
And finally a spectacular sunset from the other night…
No snow yet..but its coming.
Great photos of the frost, and gorgeous sunset!
Happy Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day!
Thanks Lea! Back atcha
Oh my, what a sunset!
It does look cold. But dry and crisp is preferable to the grey and wet days so typical of autumn here.
Thanks. The sunset was a lovely surprise at the end of what had been a raw rainy day with a few snow showers.
Wow loved the nature’s creation on the foliage..Beautiful shot of Sunset.Happy Blogger blooms day.
Thank you Arun. The sunset came after a gray, cold, dismal, wet day and was such a treat.
Autumn and winter in other climates are so compelling. I thought that I would experience part of a real winter when I want to Oklahoma a few years ago, but it barely snowed, and the weather stayed quite mild until just after we left. Even in its mild condition, it sure was pretty!
Thank you Tony.. it is beautiful here and I love the change of seasons…
