Last Bud of the Season

There is nothing left in the garden,
all the beautiful flowers and leaves have
gone until next spring.
This is the last struggling bud of a Rudbeckia.


I am joining Lisa Gordon for 

Have a wonderful day!!!

This is such a good close-up.
And that flower is still very decorative, even if lack of warmth may delay or prevent it opening.

That's a beautiful image of your last bud. I just heard on the news this morning that this is the longest stretch our area has had without snow since 1954 so I guess we can't complain at all.

Well done little Rudbeckia. The last lone bud makes a lovely shot.

I'm amazed at what is still in bloom in BC, and the Fall foliage is still on the trees. My garden was all finished when we left.

Piękne zdjęcie, ale szkoda, że to ostatni kwiatek w ogrodzie.Pozdrawiam

This is a lovely shot. Do you have snow now?

This is just beautiful! It never ceases to amaze me, just how beautiful flowers can be even after their prime. I love the wonderful simplicity of this photograph.

Thank you so much for sharing today at The Creative Exchange.

Have a wonderful evening!

You captured your last bud perfectly.

I enjoyed seeing the home of L M Montgomery too.

More than I have - everything got soggy from the rains and is mush. Now to wait for spring (and enjoy winter in the mean time).

Jann Olson said...

Sad but true! My gardens are dusted with light snow. All winter long the anticipation of spring will be on my mind!

such an interesting bloom; very textural and intruiging. Lovely photography.

Linda said...

You've captured a lovely last glimpse of summer. We're not quite at the bare stage yet - it's been a very mild autumn in Scotland, but I daresay it won't be long now before we join you in regretting flowers and colour.

Exquisitely beautiful detail. Always bittersweet - that 'last' autumn flower!

Lovely shot, a reminder of what we can look forward to next year. :)

Awesome macro Jen, right down to the downy hairs that we might not notice otherwise.
