I confess- I'm glad the recent freezes have finally come. I need the seasonal reminder, the ok for my careworn plants to turn brown before renewing in the spring. I can even see some enterprising beginnings already..

Tonally correct Turks Cap..

Well hello ambitious Mystic Spires salvia..

This santolina is finally spreading out after hunkering down all summer after transplanting.

Gaura blooms, unfazed

Oh dear coneflower.. you are out of season, but welcome anyways

The rosemary is blooming its small lavender flowers to the delight of a dozen bees

Baby Autumn Joy sedums are rising from the roots of a frozen stem

Toby is blissful to have a warm-ish day to sit on his porch pillow and sniff the air..
