12-11-13 The End of the Season

2013 12-11 End of the Season by Watertown, South Dakota, photographer Scott Shephard

When Deb and I paid the entrance fee for the Lauritzen Gardens in Omaha, Nebraska, a few weeks ago, we weren’t expecting much given that the gardens were past bloom and prepared for winter. But we were surprised by what we found. And even if we hadn’t found anything worth seeing, it would have been good just to stroll through a largely deserted landscape on a nice November day.

I suspect that many gardeners would feel that what you are seeing here is a mess that needs to be cleaned up. But I see a great mix of lines, colors and textures. This isn’t quite like Monet’s famous lily ponds at Giverney but this but perhaps a way to pay tribute the one of my favorite artists.
