first freeze, first snow, old news
October 18, 2009
Yep, we woke up to a freeze (not a frost) on Columbus Day morning. Bit of a shock and sad to see the Japonese anemones go at the height of their brilliance, along with the blood-red Dahlias, Nasturtiums, Zinnias, and all the peppers and tomatillos. We still have greens galore and Borage nodding on in blue and pink. Then it snowed. It’s almost bedtime for the garden.
By our mid-morning walk, most of it was gone.
