Fall Garden

The prettiest flower first - Charlie and I checked out the remain of their garden after school today, and then she drove her bike around to the back yard.

We found this bird wing beside the dragonfly stone. Charlie didn't know how the bird flew away with only one wing.

The crocodile pond, with lots of rocks and pine needles floating on top.

The Inukshuk - he's pretty strong and will over-winter well. I want one in Arizona.

The last purple flower (aster?) in the bunch.

Rosebuds that will never open and live up to their potential - so sad.

Rose hips - from the roses that did live up to their full potential.

This yellow flower started it all. I saw it among the rocks at the base of the large rose bush - all by itself, strong and beautiful.

What lovely photos!
I look at my flower boxes that were overflowing with colour and they are all dead now. I leave them there to see the shapes as the snow collects on them throughout the winter.

I enjoyed your pictures. Poor bird. There is a certain sadness about winter when it comes to blooms. But here in Louisiana, it blooms for a long time..

Charlie looks so grown up on her bike...even if it does having training wheels
