Seasonal Reminders






Sharing with you and those at

Mosaic Monday

The warmth from the rocks in the sun is fading as the sun sits lower and lower each day.  While the cool air moves in quickly once the sun has set, we are getting a lot done around the yard.  Almost daily trimming and clipping of spent flowers and dried seed heads, I have quite a collection for next year.  I already told my neighbor she can have all she wants.




As you can see, the ferns have begun to change color before dying back completely because of the cold nights and sunny, dry days.  The Sensitive Ferns are nearly spent.  Wandering through the yard, I see the Jack in the Pulpits bright red seed heads contract nicely with their vivid green leaves.  The colors remind me of Christmas!

the shot of the fern with the red in the pic is very like Christmas.. we are waiting for it to cool off and we will attack the back yard, hacking back and removing ferns that are out of control. this 4 months of crushing heat has made the jungle a real jungle..

Beautiful collages! The fall colours are gorgeous. I didn't know Jack-in-the-pulpit had seed heads. You are lucky to have them in your own yard.

It's photos like these that will get us through winter. I've saved a number of seeds as well and today put stakes and netting around my new shrubs so the bunnies don't eat them back to nubs again.
Thank you for linking to Mosaic Monday JP.
