'Til Next Year

Only a few weeks ago, beautiful autumnal colors brilliantly painted our landscape ...







Autumn is now slowly, but surely, bidding us adieu ...




... it's leaving us quietly and gracefully ...





... whilst  winter is slowly making its presence known,
shifting our landscape into a totally different hue.



I rescued these dahlias and dusty miller before grumpy Old Man Frost snatched them. 




Adieu beautiful autumn,
'Til next year ...

  6. Your dahlias with the dusty miller form such a lovely little bouquet. Your autumn foliage pictures are of an outstanding beauty. Here trees are almost bare too, but we have not yet had any frost.
    Have a nice weekend!

  28. With our roller coaster weather we've gone from frigid temps with over a foot of snow to 55F today which feels like spring with all the snow melting.
    I enjoyed your colourful memories of autumn and I'm glad you rescued a few flowers and leaves for a last bouquet.
    Thanks for linking to Mosaic Monday.
