MaryAnn Nøbben, Skammestein, Norway:The last of my courageous bloomers. We've had some very cold weather and on Sunday our first settling snow. Time to take in the potted plants and dream of things to be done when Spring returns, looking forward to new seed catalogs and new gardening gloves. It’s been a good summer.
The last of the brave calendula on my gardenshed roof.
Red yarrow, a gift from a friend in England.
The ever faithful Iceland poppies.
Evening primrose, a bright spot under the snow gray skies.
My favorite viola.
