Goodnite Garden...

 
The air is crisp,
and wet...
 
the garden is quiet...
 
are you ready for a final garden stroll of fall...
 
 
a blanket of leaves is quickly falling,
the trees nearly bare...
 
and the flowers are few...
 

 
still they are surprises...
 
like a handful of Cone Flowers,
shooting out of the already dead stocks...
 


It is time for Dahlias to shine...
 

 
the wet cold days have revived the Hardy Fuchsias,
they look like a breath of spring...
 
the Hummingbirds are delighted...
 

 
a Pumpkin nests
in the last Geranium blooms...
 
 
the Beauty Berry
 shows she is best of season...
 


tiny last blooms of the Ballerina Rose,
take a final twirl...
 

 
and turn quickly to fruit...
 
 
other Roses
try to bloom with the best intentions,
but they are tired...
 

 
I gather the seasons final bouquet...
 



 
Some blooms perfect,
others tattered,
each treasured...
 
Goodnite Garden
 
today am joining...
and
 
Thanks for strolling with me today...
