Autumn with winter frosting

The snow that five days ago covered many parts of Connecticut left striking contrasts for those who ventured into a garden. When flowers are few, foliage stands out.

Here’s a touch of autumn with a frosting of winter.

The colors remind me of Thanksgiving dinner and how, when a little girl, I would gaze out the window on Thanksgiving morning wishfully waiting for a few snowflakes to fall.

    I remember gazing out the window and waiting for snow. We had little snow last winter, and I do hope we have some this year. Besides being very pretty, I think it is a nice protection for the garden. Stay warm.

      I expect this winter will be very different from last, Sage Butterfly. Snow is in the forecast.

      Thank you, Scott. This grass provides a lot of interest through the winter which is one of the many reasons I like it. I’m so glad you stopped by.
