Eking out some colour

 I picked a few last bits and pieces from the garden.  I never realized that nicotiana had fuzzy petals.

 The nicotiana is very sturdy and has kept growing through the cooler weather, although now it is finally going dormant.
Some pink flash from a geranium.  Because we have so many trees on our property, it can be hard to find enough sunny spots for the plants in the summer, but the upside is that we are protected from early hard frost  in the fall so we get to enjoy the flowers for a little bit longer than people with more exposed gardens.
We may get a few flakes of snow this weekend.

  1. The year is rolling on, even if rather slowly at present. We had our first frost yesterday and all of a sudden it feels like November.
