  1. Hi Friend,
    I must say, we had a great growing season. Our kill frost came on 10/25! In Northern Wisconsin that is a true blessing.

    Here is to Spring!

    1. That is great, Carla! It's been a strange growing season, but I enjoyed the summer weather that stretched into October. Not much autumn weather this year, though--we skipped right into winter. Yes, here's to spring!

  2. Definitely not ready for this kind of weather in October!

    1. I agree. It happened too fast. I still have Oak leaves falling in the backyard, big time. I'm not sure when they'll get raked at this point.

  3. Cape snow today - our wildflower, a papery white daisy - is having a spectacularly good year.

    1. That sounds lovely, Diana. I much prefer that type of snow! ;-)

  4. Oh my! You waited so patiently for that Canna to bloom - I'm sorry to see that Mother Nature chose to take her out just when she was peaking.

    1. I'm thrilled that the Canna bloomed at all. It was kind of fun to see the bud-to-bloom progression, and it took on a special significance knowing it was happening on borrowed time. Next year, I'll try to find it a sunnier spot, although I don't have many of those here. ;-)

  5. A bit of the tropics with a sprinkling of snow! I have some good friends headed to Madison tomorrow, to see their son, who is in grad school! Y'all stay warm!

    1. I hope your friends had a safe trip. We had record snowfall for the date and it was a mess. I thought perhaps we'd get a reprieve with more mild weather, but it appears winter has set in for good--much earlier than "normal."

  6. So wonderful that you took those pictures until the snow sprinkled all over the Canna!
    Very pretty series of shots, I must say!
    Thank you for sharing them with us, today.
    Have a blessed week ahead.

    1. Thank you, Esha! It was fun to watch the progress of the Canna through the end of the growing season. :)

  7. Great series of shots! My cannas are always the first to flop when we get frost, it's fun to see one standing (relatively) tall in the snow.

    1. Thanks, Loree. It was fun to track the progress. I really like Cannas, but I need to find a sunnier spot for it, so it has a longer season to shine.

  8. I laughed a sick kind of laugh when I saw the last photo. Same here, and pretty #$%^& cold! ... down to -18 F. Did you have that too?

    1. I know. It has me chuckling, too...when I'm not crying. ;-) It's going to be a lonnngggg winter...

  9. We mostly had slush coming down. I hate that the build up to the big bloom was stopped by the snow and cold. Hopefully it will be a little quicker to bloom next year. Keep warm...

    1. Glad to hear your weather wasn't too bad, Lisa. I wish I had more sun for it. The sunny spots are quite limited here. But, actually, the foliage is really pretty, too. :)

  10. We can reinforce each other in our denial. Maybe it's time to visit a nice greenhouse.

    1. This has been a rough few weeks. Starting to settle back into "normal" weather again...I'm hoping we'll have an early spring.

  11. OH, WHAT GREAT PICTURES! I enjoyed the shots thinking, "Beth is much further north than I, so she must be cleaning old pictures out her camera." And then I saw the snow! What a shock!

    1. Thanks, Jeannie. Yes, it was quite a shock, and we've had far below normal temperatures from Halloween until a couple of days ago. Now we're settling into "normal" temps, which are still cold but not brutal like they were. :(

  12. Now that was a surprise ending! Great photos!

  13. Great shots, Beth. We haven't had snow yet, but the temps are frigidly low here. P. x
