Late Autumn in the Garden

A few days ago while raking autumn leaves from the lawn, I found these stunning sights and grabbed my macro lens.
 
In the midst of death and decay, a few "Johnnie Jump-Ups" blooms in November!   I call this photo HOPE.  The next four photos feataure Johnnie Jump-Ups amid dying hostas.

 
 
 
 
I love the way hosta leaves curl into interesting shapes at this time of year.
 
The browned and drying hydrangea leaves showed amazing texture!
 
Beautiful when backlit by the sun!

  1. Absolutely fabulous, Elaine! I love little surprises like that in the winter garden. One warm Christmas, I found red hellebores in bloom and used them on the dinner table as a tiny centrepiece!
