Mosaic Monday #15 The Magic Returns

Mid-November and the magic of winter has returned to my gardens.
Snow stretching out lazily along branches provides structure and height.
Spiky coneflower seedheads, the waving arms of 'Fireworks' goldenrod and garden art add interest.
Liatris seedheads look like candles in the snow, Queen Anne's lace takes on a new lacy appearance and a persistent 'Saucy Seduction' yarrow has one last flower to share.
We have no grass on our subdivision property and the winter garden is as beautiful as the summer, but more of a magical quality than one with colour.
This week's collages were created using piZap, free editing software.

  1. Ours is due tonight though they are changing the forecast to a mix of rain and snow ...Your photos are lovely. The first snowfall is magic, and maybe the next 3 or 4 as well. After that, enough is enough ! :)

  18. Judith, Your images are really lovely. I have always thought snow beautiful (although I'm not fond of cold weather!) Your garden is lovely in all seasons. We got 2" of snow yesterday. It looks beautiful. I must get out and get some pics.
    Hugs, Beth

  20. It snowed a bit here earlier, but not much. I'd rather see snow than ice, so I am grateful for that. Have a lovely week!

  21. Thank you Judith for sharing your early snowfall collages. We have ice crystals on the lawns and heavy frost on the roof tops and car windows and bright skies (turning to rain very soon).

  28. The little bunny looks so cold. I do like to leave seed pods over the winter to add interest to the garden, as you photos so wonderfully show.

  32. A fresh snowfall always looks so magical, and the snowflakes were very distinct in that last snow. Such nice visual interest in your winter garden, and beautiful photos. I like to leave seed pods sticking up too, and the birds are still enjoying the black-eyed Susan seeds.
