October begins

Autumn Crocus
Here it is the beginning of October and no killing frost yet!  Some annuals are still bravely flowering, but falling leaves tell us that the end is near. The melon plants are totally done as are the tomatoes.

The leaves of the deciduous trees are wonderfully coloured this year: vibrant reds and brilliant yellows. One or two red leaves are showing on the Serviceberry.  Can't wait until it's in full colour!

The Miscanthus is blooming, and so are the Colchicums and Autumn Crocus.  You can't fool them.  They know when fall arrives, frost or no frost.
