After the Frost Before the Snow: Plants in Beautiful Decay


I have been wanting to share these pictures here with you since I took them in late October.  They are all  pictures of flowers in partial decay after a killing frost in October.   They are located in the King George Garden at Fort Ticonderoga in upstate New York.  It was my first visit there and it was the last day they were open for the season.  What a treat to happen upon all this beauty.



I don't know the names of any of these flowers.  I was just so taken with the colors that had developed since the heavy frost.  Such gorgeous shades of brown and green, yellow and red.  Coincidentally we were recently given some bulbs to grow these flowers in the  picture above.  I look forward to watching them next summer.

                       Such perfect daisy heads amid the subdued shades of their summer colors.

                       These rosy tan leaves were on plants way over 6 feet tall.

                     Love the red orange flower amid these shades of tan and brown.

                                             Such a cascade of pink.
                                             And then the bright red.

                             And a black green silhouette.
    And a final dance before winter sets in.

I am just in time with this post as we are expecting our first snow of the season tonight.
What a sweet farewell to my favorite seasons.
