Kathleen: Your macros are among the very best! Those Hibiscus images are definitely warm and hopeful. Sorry about the snow! It's funny that we're so far ahead of you here with the foliage changes--but no snow predicted in the next two weeks. Weather is weird!


We've been hearing about that first blizzard of the season. Crazy with ground temps at 80. The hibiscus is splendid. I have a red one here that I hope will do well now that I have put it in a south facing window. I just don't have luck with houseplants like you.


Oh yuk!Not that old white stuff already. This is just not right.
I am glad you brought in your flowers too. The Powder Puff hibiscus is just gorgeous Kathleen. What great crinkly blooms.


Oh Kathleen, you have my deepest sympathies. I know that snow and winter are no friends of yours, mine either! No snow here yet, thank goodness. We've only had a few mild frosts, nothing deadly yet.

oh my... 80 degrees and then snow in the same week... talk about a rough transition into winter! hopefully the warm weather will return for a bit and your plants haven't suffered too much from the early snow. We had our first hard frost this week, but I was picking zucchini the day before! I'm hoping my peas, broccoli, and cauliflower can keep on going.


Sorry to see that you've gotten snow already but that hibiscus blossom is gorgeous Kathleen.


What? Snow? Actually I did see something on the news about this. I hope it's not a harbinger of things to come. I hope your trees and shrubs didn't suffer too badly. Here's to a few more 80 degree days.
