Better Late Than Never
I've been watching these flowers hoping they would bloom before they are covered with snow. We have actually had several days where the temp has gone below freezing but with the plants being so close to the house they have had just enough protection to survive.
We have had a good Fall this year, maybe a bit above average, but I remember many Halloweens where we were knee deep in snow. It's definitely a bonus to still see flowers blooming just two days before November.
