First Frost

My Weather Bug said there was a threat of frost last night and when I went out to start the car, there was some REAL frost on the windshield! However just a difference of 3 feet saved the few flowers that are still blooming.
These are some of my miniatures...
Last Stella d'Oro.
In ten days the Kale has turned from this:
to more purple showing. It should keep changing as the nights are cooler.
I brought this plant in the house last winter, but it was such a mess that I won't mind leaving it out when the frost sinks lower. Can't remember the name since I got to feeling awful this afternoon with a cough and dry throat and am ready for a rest.
Human contact at school means those germs occasionally meet a host...this time it was me. Grrr.

No snow here this past weekend. Ours out on the plains usually comes around Halloween.

Sorry you got the school crud. Mike had it a week or so ago, and I have it now; and I haven't been even close to you guys. Rest up and get better. Love the kale! Sally

Hi Marilyn! A while back you left a comment asking me for Queen Annes Lace seeds. I have some of those for you and would be more than happy to send them to you if you are still interested. You can just email me your address.

Marilyn, You have the prettiest Flowers ever!
Love seeing them.

So sorry you have a touch of the eck. Hope your voice returns for you. May you get your rest and be refreshed.

I don't want the snow to come until CHRISTMAS!!! Do you suppose I'll get my wish? I doubt it, but it's a grand thought.

Take care,

Hi Marilyn,

Yes. It is that time of year again huh? I hope you feel 100% quickly. I hate that feeling that you feel when you know you are coming down with something. Take care of yourself dear.

*hugs*
