blue christmas

Tried my hand at making milkweed pod ornaments for Christmas. Turned out that rotated around in a mandala they make a nice star burst! So got two creative projects out of one. Hope we all have a good Holiday season! Stay Safe and Be Well!

kiss me over the garden gate

That is the name of this flower it forms on a tall stalk and could easily hang over a garden gate. Liked the shadows and the star in the middle!

Most of the leaves have fallen but this was the view one day last summer. We are having weather in the 70s today, nice and pleasent!

last flower

Almost last flower blooming before the hard frost. Liked the blue color and the stamen sticking out. we have gotten down to 19 degrees and will be down to 9 degrees by Sunday, Brrr

Summer is winding down even thou we continue to be warmer than usual. Plants are turning brown and the milkweed seed flies.
