Last of the summer wine

In spite of the snow and wind of the last few days, there are still some roses hanging on.  Thinking of blogger friends in America at this time and hope you are still hanging on there.  Be safe.

All these hydrangea heads came from the same plant.  Some of my favourite colours! Amazing that one plant can be so varied.

It's got to be autumn

Growing in my garden but don't know the name! Two of Kim Klassen's textures, with 'Clive Barker' font.

A friend gave me what I thought was a large thistle, but since the artichoke is a perennial thistle that's not surprising.  What was a surprise was the inside of the head - I thought it would be like the inside of a poppy  or a pineapple!  Just shows you never know what something contains!
