First, I’ve got to apologize again for the quality of photos. Not only is my DSLR down for the count, but so is my iPhone. (It’s supplied by work, so a new one is on the way) I’m down to using my five-year-old cheapo Android phone. It gets the job done, but well…
Anyway, onto the post!
It’s frosty out there, we’ve even had a little snow. But some flowers just cling on!
The Toad Lilies aren’t really a shocker, they are late bloomers and seem to love the cold.
The marigolds are pretty hardy too, but after the snow melted off them the other day, they look a little like they are encased in ice.
There’s no butterflies around any more, but the butterfly bush has still got a few blooms.
Chicago Peace just never quits!
But can you believe these darn irises!?!?
Or these strawberries? I doubt they’ll ripen, but you’ve got to give it an A for effort!

You are in an amazing climate to get the most out of your garden! (Well , the gardener is amazing, too!) The Peace rose is superb….
Wow! So much still in bloom.
The marigold photo is awesome.
Wow!!! We have had our first hard frost and even the sunflowers were wilted this morning when I walked. Your gardens have just been spectacular this year!
Beautiful. Love the glazed marigolds.
Goodness! You’ve got so much still blooming. We had a hard frost last night and everything went over. My poor yard looks terrible. My hostas all turned yellow and mushy and my little unexpected impatiens family is no more. Sigh.
I was in the woods yesterday, and the only blooms still out are on the witch hazel. I hope to add a bush to my yard next year; love the late-season flowers.
