A search for color

Our weather has turned wintry today with falling temperatures and rain and sleet.  I looked around the yard and found it void of color.  But just earlier this week the sedum had turned a beautiful rusty-red.  I don’t usually pay too much attention to the sedum, but each small bud and the deep color reminded me of cranberries (another of my fall favorites).  I am glad to see that I stopped to photograph the sedum before it bore the brunt of the freeze and slap of the cold temps.  Sometime in the near future our landscape will be refreshed in another color – the white of winter.

    Don’t forget to check the sedum with a brush of white snow. I have lots of sedum. It is to me a peaceful suttle plant. Snow blasted the pass last night

      The snow on the sedum will have to wait. We’ve had one dusting of snow last Monday, but the forecast is for 50’s this week. Must be a global-warming thing??? Our “average” November snowfall is 6+ inches and I don’t think we’ll have any more than that earlier dusting.
