Gardens in the Off Season

I love gardens in all seasons; blanketed under snow in winter, after the ripeness of summer and before the new shoots of spring. Their structure can be loose or geometric, their fences shabby, sparrows on the bean poles. It is all redolent of growth, sunshine, fertility....really good earth! 

This is Number Seven, one of a series of 24 x 30 pastels; 3 autumn gardens , one winter garden that I have been working on lately. Please leave a comment. I'd like to know what you think.

I love the belts of vibrant color, and the haziness of the trees and sky. The dark shapes of dying things in a garden on the edge of a season can be beautiful, too, and you've captured that.
