|A cosmos bloom catches a gusty October breeze|
in my St. Albans, Vermont yard.
The spring was somewhat early and warm, and October until now has been the warmest in many years.
We've had no frost, at least until probably tonight, so a few of my flowers are still blooming.
As if to signal the change toward winter, most of my perennials really started to give up the ghost in the past week, even before it turned nippy.
I was able to get some more photographs of flowers in during the past two weeks before the inevitable cold, colorless winter sets in. A few examples are in this post.
Hope you like them as you scroll down for a peek.
