Pleasant contrast on a drab, cold day…

I was knocking around a small fish hatchery in Oregon. The temp was 34, it was raw, raining hard. No one was in sight. The colors were the usual late Fall colors of rain soaked, dirty yellows & tans, browns, dark greens and not much bright colors save two shrubs near the hatchery facility. A pleasant look compared to the typical drab, institutional colors & plantings of such facilities.

Photography: Abandoned Beauty & Fantasy

A yard, neglected and forgotten because of life’s demands and distractions. Priorities demand the owner turn away from Springtime and past efforts to create a peaceful place. The peace is still there for the seeker. The beauty is there, but not seen now.

The Garden: Almost…so close

Although the cold nights have not hit the metro area yet, the rains/winds have been typical of early November. The garden is finishing with the growth battered downward at an angle, the leaves from the Alders and Maples everywhere. The roses had reached skyward one last time in October and were slow to bud out. The last efforts at blooms seem lost until late Spring. Time to “cut them back a bit.” The cold temps are closer.

Rose Buds too late SB“Cut them back a bit” was a term my Dad used around the yard. It was a term my Mom didn’t care for because it usually meant a careless, overdone pruning. My wife knows of this familial term and enjoys using it against me when I supposedly over trim back the growth. Everyone’s a critic!
