Pre Winter Blues in my garden

Not much happen in my garden now when it prepares for the Swedish cold winter, but yesterday we had frost, and that always bring a certain beauty to the darkness :D

My Snowberry bushes bring some light to the darkness
Just now is the water in the stream pretty high by my footbridge, but are regulated further down in the dam's around the Lövstabruk Manor, wonder how it's in the spring when the melting snow can bring a LOT of water.
My new Hollyhock are green wich is promising since I live a little bit high up in the country for these to thrive
The wonderful colour of the Heuchera "Palace Purlpe" bring a certain beauty to the covering Maple leafs
The Deer tounge Fern sticking out
The Japanese Mahonia Fern seems to thrive as well while waiting for the snow
My Rose "Else Krohn" staying green against the warming rock wall
A sign that the fall have been a little bit to warm, and that I layed down the protecting Spruce twigs to early, the "New Dawn" rose growing, and it shouldn''t, the show is here soon and it will probably freeze.

And so the FROST came yesterday, beautiful :D
Beauty by the stream
The Echinacea/Rudbeckia still standing
The Maple leafs that cover all the new flowerbeds makes them look like natural art in the frost
The Japanese Mahonia Fern

Certainly another time of beauty before the snow will cover everything
Enjoy, I do! Per!
