This past Friday we had a hard frost overnight
yet on Saturday in the late morning, after a bit of sunshine,
there were still blooms in amongst the fall decay
I managed to get one more harvest of lavender!
and there was one brave hold out on the clematis vine..
Elsewhere in the garden
things were in various stages of imminent decay
but seriously, in spite of their demise
I think they look quite pretty in their own right...
clematis remains go
through a number of incarnations
after the flower has dropped
...and this leaf's lacy dress was quite fascinating as well...
