Finished for the season:
Black-eyed Susan Vine
Dahlias, Cosmos, etc. in pots
Dahlias in the ground
Some plants that seem to have survived so far:
Well, I'm not sure about the iris, but the color is still nice.
The sweet allyssums have been blooming ever since being planted,
and the snow hasn't seemed to have phased them.
This dianthus has spent the last several winters in the egress window. We haven't put pots in there yet, because we are hoping the weather will warm up. It is supposed to in a few days, so we'll hang in there, and let my knee and ankle heal more before tucking the plants in.
In my last post, I started out with flower buds, and led some to believe I was going to show opened flowers. Some were shocked over the snow. I was, too. It was quite early. Yesterday, when I got home from church, as I pulled into the driveway, I glanced across the street. I was not prepared to see all the dead plants, and tears filled my eyes.
This week we are warming up from the lows in the 20s and 30s, with highs in the 40s. By Friday, it is supposed to get into the 50s, and by the weekend, the 60s. That is what the normal weather is like this time of year. I hope it sticks around awhile. We have lots of cleaning up to do. I take most of the annuals out in the fall, and clean up the perennials in the spring.
I hope you are enjoying fall, whatever your weather is like.
