Sleepy Farewells

Do you ever go into your garden after a frost has taken the bloom off everything in it?  Do you murmur a little thank you to all your flowers, trees and shrubs, not to mention the odd bumblebee who might be making its rounds one last time? 

To offer a grateful whisper to them for having made your little corner of the world a beautiful place...

I almost imagine that they offer sleepy nods in response as they nestle in for a well-deserved rest until Spring.

I took the above photos a couple of weeks ago...before the snow arrived...and forgot to post.

All things that are beautiful
~ think on these things ~
and give thanks!

Wishing you a beautiful day,



  1. Lovely post...

    Gentle hugs,

    Raise the song of Harvest-home"

  2. You can still get some beautiful photos even after a frosty night. I like to take a walk and discover what color has survived and what might make an interesting photo.

  3. Dear Brenda,

    It's so nice to know that someone else talks to their yard! :) I always miss the leaves and flowers, but you are right that they deserve a rest. Plus, the snow is beautiful, too, in its place.

    Thank you for the reminder to treasure this time of year.

Thank you so much for leaving your 'footprint' here in my comment box. I do appreciate you taking a moment to share your thoughts today.
