Ok .. beige'y browny kind of combo with the grass heads .. avert your eyes from the ugly water down spot .. scary ain't it ?
Glorious and rather "grainy" looking Goatsbeard .. I think they are actually pretty for winter interest .. come Spring I hack them back with no mercy .. so for now they heave a sigh of relief !
Anise Hyssop .. one of my first true loves in this garden. I still smother as much of its scent in my hands when it is in its prime ... fennel is a very close second to it : )
Purple Flame grass seeds held in those gossamer faned heads .. just amazing with so many potential baby grasses ..
I hate to say I have a brown rosebud but .. there it is .. a little too late to bloom. Still eye catching .. it is from Angel Face , one of my favorite roses.
I'm sure you all recognize baptisia .. I couldn't resist cracking open one of the seed pods .. heaven knows I am a total kid with having to shake them and laugh ... simple minds ??
