Well I Wasn't Expecting This (emphasis on "This")

My roses are going out in grand style.  This planting season has definitely ended on a high note as you can see from these pictures.  The "real" November arrives tomorrow.  It will be colder and windier--sort of what one expects this time of year.  But I'm a happy camper, make that gardener.  My growing season was great and all is not lost; I still have some cooler weather plants that I can enjoy:  lettuce, broccoli, thyme, and onions.  Not to mention the indoor planting that I will start next weekend.  Yes, it's paperwhite and amaryllis time.  It's my strategy for making the blooming season last all year long.  It can be yours too.  Stay tuned.
