Nice pics, as usual. :)
Calendulas seem to survive a light frost.

What beautiful snaps! Love them. I plan on planting more borage next year. Had one and it got washed out, love that bloom.


Wallflowers can take frost. I love snapdragons and every year I mean to plant them and every year I forget.


Snapdragons are a favorite, but mine didn't thrive this year, so I don't have many to show now, either. Cosmos and Zinnias can handle a light frost. And Pansies are amazingly frost-tolerant. I need to try more of them next year.

I used to plant snapdragons when I had more sun, and I love their long flowering time and hardiness. My lobelia in the garden lasts past the first frost, too.


Wow! Gorgeous Photos! Thanks for sharing!!


I LOVE this blog! So beautiful, I check it a few times a week. You are an incredible photographer and seem to like alot of the same roses, tulips, peonies, dahlias etc as me, so I am hooked! I first found it while googling around trying to decide on amaryllis bubs this year, double dream and sweet nymph, and two new gervais won out as mine were petering out after 3 years. Anyway, I wanted to say mexican salvia is so great this time of year after everything else is gone, it's still beatutiful til it gets cold here/ east end LI NY, not sure where you are, but I plant it every year.
