Mid-November in the Garden

The garden takes on a sepia tone these days, covered in a bit of snow, and all the former flowers dried and brown.  But I got out my macro lens to see what I could find.  A very different look to the garden than the many colours I posted over the summer!

The beautiful feathery seed heads of one of our clematis.

 Snow capping a Sedum.

Dried seed pods of a Ninebark shrub.

 Remnants of the bright yellow Ligularia.

The tough stem of the Bear's Breeches still standing tall.

And one of the Sugar Maples I planted 15 years ago that's determined not to lose it's leaves!

  4. The first one is my favorite too, though all are beautiful. Every season has it's own beauty.
