You will get to enjoy those late fall bloomers for longer now. At least you weren't caught by surprise, and you are ahead with bringing your tropical plants indoors.

I've considered planting some fall anemones before, but I think our growing season would be just too short for them here. As it is, the tall Actaea usually just manage to get some bloom time in before the season ends.

Light frost, heavy frost, they both take out a little of the garden. Glad your blooms can hold on for a little longer. Sure does mark the end of summer.


I say good-bye to my plants before a frost too. Not morbid at all, though it is a little sad. We will probably get our first frost in the next week or two.


We had just a light frost here also, it was nice.


Callibrocha is a real workhorse around here. One year it lasted until a killing freeze in December! My common geraniums can take a little light frost too. But impatiens are real wimps. All you have to do is give them a cold glance and they wither and die!
