The last of the flowers still pushing blooms were harvested before our frost this weekend. . .
Sprinkled in watering cans and filling a zinc bucket . . . the last hurrah for hydrangeas and roses until we meet again next spring.
We had our first freeze on Sunday with the mercury plunging into the 20s.
Summer stretched over five months with one of the warmest Septembers in 80 years, while our fall lasted about 20 minutes before we made the leap to winter!
Hydrangeas were in various stages of bloom and color. . .
Some roses a little past their peak and shabby.
I celebrate pumpkin season beyond the jack-o’-lantern . . .
Enjoying them through Thanksgiving before trading them in for boughs of holly and jingle bells.
Fall is my favorite season and I’ll be sad to see the pumpkins go. . .*sniff*
I like all pumpkins and don’t discriminate. . .
Bumpy, smooth, blue, white, orange, long or short-stemmed.
It’s shaping up to be a very wet and cold week here in North Carolina, with more rain on the way.
Hope you’re staying warm and dry!
Happy Harvest ♥
