Gardening Season Draws to a Close

The snow hasn't arrived here yet. I was able to work in the garden a bit today. My fall clean-up is pretty much done. It's nice when the snow waits until I am finished. There have been many years when I have been caught by surprise by an early snowstorm.

I took these photos a couple of weeks ago when I was bringing some hydrangeas into the house. I discovered some spotted stowaways and thought I would share my photos of them. I saw ladybugs today too. The warm sun seems to bring them out.

There are several months in the year when I am very torn between painting and gardening. The winter months remove that pressure. When it's cold and snowy, painting is the obvious choice. As much as I will miss my garden, I look forward to cozy studio time.

  1. these photographs are so very stunning. Maybe when the garden is covered in its wintery blanket you will be inspired to paint one of them.

    1. Thanks so much, Margie. I took them on the back step holding the hydrangea branch in one hand and my camera in the other. :) I am very tempted to do a painting of one.
