  1. Beautiful shots. We have had our first frost here as well.

  2. I really think everything looks so pretty coated in frost. We still haven't had one, but usually do by mid November.

  3. Beautiful photos! I especially like the calendula and rose mallow shots.

  4. We had a pretty heavy frost here too . . . scattered about the garden. Your photos of the icy fingers of death are quite stunning. Sad but beautiful! I just notice your Plein Air button . . . a painter! Lovely! ;>)

  5. this is so wonderfully captured, even though its a sad part of the garden ending, the beauty of how you captured it will be kept forever in your photography, so nicely done.

  6. Thank you! I love the first frosts. Enjoyed your photos as well – for those of you in fros zones. It's almost time for "Frosty the Snowman." I have been enjoying painting plein air (outdoors, on locatioin) for most of the summer. I hope to make time to keep painting in my office/studio over the winter. Each month I feature one of my paintings on this blog – another way to make myself keep painting! I work in watercolor – difficult, but I plan to keep at it.

Thank you for joining me in the making of my garden!
