I love fall. It’s my favorite season of all. I took a walk today with camera in hand, planning to shoot whatever grabs my eye. Most of the neighbors have cut their perennials down, readying them for winter’s cold and snow. Not me! I like to leave mine for the snow to dust… I like the way it looks covered with snow. There’s time enough to cut everything down in late winter/early spring, just before everything wants to burst through and get ready to bloom.
So, I shot a few photos by my front door. I love my cement rooster. I always thought it would be fun to have chickens… and a rooster, of course! Don’t know what I’d do with them, but they give me that “down on the farm” feeling that I adore. I would have made a great farm girl, as long as I didn’t have to work in the fields or shovel poo.
My rusty trellis needs some vines growing on it. I think in the spring I need to plant something to give it a little green, but I don’t want the plant to overtake the charm of the flowers. I’ll spend some time this winter looking for just the right addition. Funny how we hate rust on some things, but love it on others!
