If I had just started gardening in the past couple of years, I would have felt as though the temperature dip of early October was directed at me personally. As one who has no such newbie status, I am duly red-faced. My husband lugged in the tropicals, a job that gets more difficult each year as he ages and the plants grow. But I could have ooched the mixed pots beneath the eaves for a possible save. Today it's in the 70s for pity's sake!

So aside from putting the kibosh on my Zinnias and several mixed planters, the frost hasn't forced me to forgo continued fun in my fall garden. Enjoy what's left of the season, snap some photos, open the windows and listen to the leaves swish in the wind. And happy Garden Bloggers Bloom Day!
