See? If I actually cleaned up my garden at the end of fall, I would miss views like this.  My laziness serves a purpose.  Now, if I could only make my house-dusting laziness serve a purpose.

    We don’t get the snow to help make such a lovely picture, but the mint stems are standing stark naked, but proud in my back yard.

    You’ve inspired me to explore my garden and take a closer look at what’s left standing from last summer. Maybe I will find a few good shots too. Nice photos, Pam.

    Sorry guys. I have daylillies, iris, and calendula blooming and had my doors open over the weekend. On the other hand, we may not get enough chill days to set the fruit tree flower buds, and that is a bad thing.

    Dust is a protective coating. No, it really is in some cases. I read about a fire next door to a book store. The dust on some of the books helped to protect them from smoke damage.
