Mosaic Monday - Fading Autumn

I decided to take a stroll through the gardens out the back to see if there was anything interesting to photograph for this week. A hint of colour in a fading wisp of gaura that had fallen to the ground and a dying flower and seedhead of echinacea. The 'New Dawn' rose still had some healthy looking stems but the flowers are long gone and the berries on the oakleaf mountain ash are shrivelling up. See the fluffy seadhead in the upper right photo? That's ligularia dentata and am I going to pay for not cutting those off! They seed all over but I'll pot them up for my garden club plant sale.
I'm linking with Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.

  10. You must have a little microclimate there Judith. I would not be able to find any last minutes in my garden. Wonderful.

  14. Very pretty mosaic, Judith. I love the purple coneflower and the mountain ash berries. I have a ligularia too (it's new to me this year) - I also let it go to seed. Thanks for the hint!
    Hugs, Beth

  15. It seems your last walk through the Fall Garden paid off quite nicely with your lovely mosaic. Just that bit of snow/ice on the flower was a magical touch.

  21. Lucky, lucky mom to go to your daughter's house for T-day. My son took pity on me and said, "Mom, next year I'll have it at our house." HURRAH! Although I love it all the extra "help" in the kitchen makes for triple duty for me.

    Thinking of you and sending lavender wishes,

  22. Lovely mosaic! Now that our surprise snow all melted we are seeing faded fall also.

  23. I love how our gardens give us spots of interest even after the flowers fade. I'm loving the clematis seedheads I left on the vine. Too bad they don't volunteer easily!

  24. Oh, there is true beauty even in the fading.
