    Beautiful autumn picture

  3. GREAT POST ELIZA, THE GARDEN LIKE LIFE EVOLVING IN TIME, CHINA

  4. The seedpods are almost as beautiful as the flowers themselves. Did you have many monarch larvae this year? It was out best that I can remember.

    • Eliza Waters says:

      Yes, I was so thrilled with the Monarch numbers this year. I’m cautiously optimistic that we can bring these back from the edge. Concerted effort by many is yielding positive results, hurrah!

      • I am also. This was a banner year. I couldn’t believe the number of visits we received and our driveway only has anywhere from 12-24 plants in different years. This was the best yet. It took some convincing for Mary Beth to agree that they could “take over” the gardens but she was happy to see the larvae too. Excited about next year.

    I love these simple remnants left behind in the fields.

    Beautiful seeds – such little things that promise so much magic

  7. Have a good Sunday, Eliza. I planted pink milkweed seeds yesterday. πŸ™‚

  8. Alice says:

    The pods sure are bursting open and seeds escaping and blowing and looking beautiful in the sunshine.

    Absolutely beautiful Eliza.

  10. sandyjwhite says:

    Pretty, even in decline.

  11. The pods have a beauty all their own. Lovely shot!

  12. So pretty Eliza! You’ve captured fall in such a lovely way.

  13. Debbie says:

    I see I’m right by your tags — this is milkweed! What a lovely photo, Eliza!

  14. Kris P says:

    I love that you and your camera capture beauty in all its manifestations.

  15. Widdershins says:

    What strange creatures be these, freed from their lifetime of bearing the next generation? What dreams will bring to life? πŸ™‚

  16. So pretty! I am one of those weirdos who loves the November landscape—frosty and brown and waiting.

  17. Great photo subject and capture!

  18. Maria says:

    Regeneration, or transformation is what comes to mind when I see this image. The law of life.

  19. Jewels says:

    Fly little fuzzies, be free, and may you land in rich soil! Beautiful, Eliza!
