Time For Winter Interest

It was a crushing snow. Then my pain got shared with the world via Andrew Sullivan's VFYW. 

The Tall Flower Meadow is for all purposes no more. The time to highlight the under garden has arrived sooner than expected.

It's a cold wet mess out there now. First the snow has to melt. Then I can start the chop and drop and uncover the under garden as I go. When is the real question. It is near dark when I get home now and I have another month at least of putting gardens to bed for clients.

My rear view mountain glows in the setting sun. It has a lot of oaks and is the last to fade into winter. One last view of fall before winter interest is all there is.

What a stark contrast to the last June 21st array of blooms and greenery. It's the cycle of life.
On a more mundane note, really like the red it on the scenic byway?

Going out in a blaze of glory up there on the rear view. Looks like you are power-shifting into Winter.

You will have to be satisfied with looking at your header photo. It is still so pretty.

It's tough when the first snow is a crushing snow. By mid-winter we might be a little more ready to believe that will happen.

We do have our memories. Winter will be another.

Yes Dana that is a red truck passing by on the scenic byway. Gives a little perspective of the garden.

Power shifting indeed Barry. More snow in the diagnosis already.

Lisa I will always have my header photo. It was a good year in the Tall Flower Meadow.

Lost Roses that was a bit unusual for the first snow.

Lola I hope this winter is good memories.
