A freeze

Things are looking a little sad around here after it froze Saturday night, October 6. We didn't check the weather, so didn't cover anything and we lost all our coleus and the beautiful lantana. Most of the other plants are doing okay, so there are still spots of color (and we moved some pots around to capitalize on what is still blooming) but it's always a little sad when we realize this year's flowers have done their duty. I have to remind myself that things bloomed almost a full month early this year, so we still certainly got our money's worth.

I brought some blooms inside for the window sill and am really enjoying the bright splash of color they provide.

Aw, your yard is still gorgeous, Deb. (love all the purple!) Our killing frost is coming tonight... alas. Wasn't it a great summer? :) Blessings, Debra

It was a wonderful summer! No complaints. And now autumn is adding its own wonderful color to the landscape. If only I liked winter as well. :}
