Today's photos are from Benjamin Vogt out in Lincoln, Nebraska. We visited Benjamin's garden a whopping two and a half years ago (refresh your memory HERE), and it's been way too long. He says, "I'm soooooo in love with fall and winter in the garden–the subtle earthen hues, the way the winter sun hits them low, the seed heads, the way snow piles up to elongate stems, the birds that come for food and shelter, no lawnmowers…… Summer is too hot and buggy, though I'm happy to see more insects than in previous years (big drought in 2012 wiped away so much life)." I am so with you on this one, Benjamin. Give me fall over summer any darned day. I love the way the hosta leaves look as they decline, the deep burgundy the doublefile viburnum in my back yard has turned, the golden light, the cool nights and brilliant days…dreamy! Send more photos, would ya? **Benjamin has a lovely blog! Check it out HERE.**
Help me keep kicking out posts all winter long–send me photos of your gardens! Email me at [email protected] Thanks! –Michelle
