Mosaic Monday - Last of the Garden


I have been so busy these last few weeks and have not been visiting all my blog friends as much as I would like. To get into proper slow mode for this week, I promised myself a photography excursion around the garden, even though I had to put on a winter coat, boots and gloves. It was lovely to slow down and enjoy what was left of the garden and listen to the birds twittering in the trees.
 Here are a few pictures I took.
I am linking with Mary at Little Red House for Mosaic Monday.
Thank you for stopping in for a visit and have a wonderful week.

Those are lovely pictures especially the bottom left one - I don't recognise the type of berry. You are spot on about the bird song - it's so relaxing to listen to it and watch their activity increasing in the garden.

It's wonderful to see so much colour still in your garden!

Each season in the garden has it's own beauty!

It is beginning to get chilly here and my gardens are fading. The birds are still active and I'm sure you also enjoyed hearing their chatter on you garden walk.

Your excursion yielded lovely photos for your mosaic!

I have accomplish a lot in my yard but still have more to do. Yesterday, my husband and grandson hauled wood from the front driveway to the back patio and stacked it as we plan to ready the stove in our fireplace.

Very, very pretty! It is always sad to view the last of our gardens knowing it will be a long time until they thrill us again with their color.

What a beautiful mosaic! Like all your creative touches!

Genie said...

With all of your cold weather you still have a bit of color left. That is wonderful. What’s left of my flowers are faded and wilting with the frosts we are now having each night. The mosaic is so interesting. I enjoyed it a lot.

Very nice mosaic. You've still got some beauty there in Ontario, don't you? Pretty slim pickin's here in Vermont, all ready :)

Your mosaic is lovely, as is the thought of wandering around taking photos of the fall aspects of your garden.
Thanks for visiting my blog.

Great mosaic!

Anja said...

Your macro shots are together a very nice autumn garden mosaic.

Jackie said...

Beautiful mosaic.

We all need time to recharge our batteries, especially before the Winter.

Have a good week, Jackie in Surrey, UK.

Jen, its nice that you can find beauty even in the dying, shriveled up specimens in your garden. Beautifully done mosaic!

It was cold here too...we had our first snowfall!!!

Sall's Country Life said...

Farewell lovely garden,see you in the spring! Great mosaic pictures and I like the way you framed it also.

Betty Jo said...

Gorgeous mosaic! It's sad to see the gardens go, but they will be back soon and even more beautiful than before. Yes, we'll do just about anything for a good shot!! Once in CA I was hanging off a ledge, with my hubby holding my ankles so I didn't drop head first into a deep gorge! ♥

Susan said...

Isn't it wonderful how each season has it's beauty? The pictures in your mosaic really show the loveliness of fall. The frost has hit us pretty hard a few times now and my garden is pretty much wilted away now. But still... there is beauty there.

I hope you have yourself a lovely day,
Susan @CluckleBees

Very interesting photos of your end of season plants.

Irene said...

Oh don't you just cherish them? We have a plant with these red berries, too. They bring a smile to my face with theirr simple beauty and audacious colour. Thanks for stopping by and commenting.

Beautiful mosaic! These are what I current see in my garden right now too!

Jennifer,
I am so glad you stopped by. I am so far behind...I finally got the boxes unpacked and found homes for most of the stuff. I am now trying to finish some projects I started last year. And I see so many new projects I would love to make.

As usual, your photography is absolutely stunning.

Bernie said...

I'm rather late in visiting your MM post ... but I made it and just had to say how fabulous your mosaic is. Great shots of the plants finishing up for the season.

Cozy Home Scenes said...

Looks like you still have beauty to look at even this time of year. However, it sounds a bit weird to this Southern U.S. girl to hear about gloves and coats this time of year. Don't talk that way! :) Actually it's been much colder this year than the last 5 years or more, so we'll probably be needing our coats pretty soon too.

Hope you have a great weekend coming up!
