The Magic Is Gone...

But the Beauty still lingers...

The magic of the Hallowed Eve 
may be gone til another year,
But the beauty of my gardens
will never disappear.

Enjoy some of my Halloween Post pics
without the magic...

The spider is still quite nice.

The hydrangea is delightful!

The Jackmanii Clematis seed-head is still enchanting
especially to that little white spider who is merrily dancing about.

Still quite dead, but still quite beautiful.

A dying rose... still elegant.

And enchanting.

Who knew death could be so beautiful...

and alluring.

And the end of the rose will never lose her beauty.

Be sure to visit my Halloween post 
to view the fun I had with editing. 
I had so much fun.

And for those who were wondering...
I'm back to my old self again.

(The Witch in me only comes out on Halloween.
Well, there are times when...)


  1. What a wonderful post! I agree that there is still so much beauty in "dead" plants this time of year and your photos really showcased that. Hope you had a wonderful Halloween!

  2. Pretty images and the rose with the tiny spider, it almost looks like you put him in there. I would have missed him altogether.

  3. You captured the images of those flowers so beautifully. So many people disregard anything past it's "prime" and miss the elegance that comes with age.

  4. Super shots !!
    Amazing how a photographer like you can bring a weathering garden to life.

  5. Oh, I love this! I sometimes think our flowers are even prettier as they fade into oblivion.

  6. There is a lot of grace and beauty in the dying (or going to sleep) garden, and you've captured it wonderfully!

  7. There is such beauty in even a fading flower. There is a name for this type of photography in Japan but I just can't remember it

  8. Nice and really unusual pictures. Brava!

  9. lovely photos! even death can be beautiful
    I liked the tiny spider the best

  10. Just dropped in at your Other Writing Blog. November is novel writing month. Have you tried that? How is your (hidden) writing going?


Welcome to my gardens!
Your comments are the sweet nectar that keeps me posting.
So glad you stopped by!
