The title of this post is a bit misleading since it was mid September when I last posted photos from the garden. Mums and dahlias and asters were the stars of the show in late September and most of October. In October the leaves started turning and a hard frost, late in the month, gave me a signal that it was time to put everything to bed. November brought some opportunities to capture frosted delicacies and just last Friday the milkweed seed pods opened to show their glorious display of seeds, ready to scatter in the winter winds.
One of my photography goals this year was to take better pictures in the garden, avoiding the kind of photos you see in a common flower catalog. I think this was successful overall and to celebrate, I put together a slide show. If you would like to watch this from YouTube, click the YouTube link in the lower right and it will take you directly to a larger viewer. You may want to give it a moment to load. I don’t recommend going full screen on this one since it plays a little choppy and I haven’t been able to figure out why.
