Every Season Creates a Moment

Today we’re in Southbury, Connecticut, visiting with Elaine Esposito, and she started the intro to these photos with a quote from poet Stanley Horowitz:

“Winter is an etching, spring a watercolor, summer an oil painting, and autumn a mosaic of them all.”

I hope you will enjoy the sampling of photos I once again took from my gardens and yard. I live in Connecticut, where I can enjoy the full beauty of all four seasons. How we all love our gardens, our flowers, our yards, nature, and the rainbow of outdoor colors that intertwine our lives. Beauty can be found within every season, as nature serves as the backdrop, the canvas for our ideas and pleasure.

Because of their love of cooler temperatures and cheery colors, pansies (Viola × wittrockiana, cool-season annual) are the epitome of spring.

Though the potted cushion mums are often treated as short-term garden decorations, many of them will overwinter and come back next year if planted early and given a little extra protection their first winter.
