Thank you Sherry - the fall colors are dependent on the weather here, if there's a hard frost early on the leaves just turn brown. If it's a stormy fall the leaves get shredded and torn off. That one windy week didn't do too much damage so it's been an excellent fall colorwise .... best one since 2006 which was also a very mild, calm fall ..... although the first frost did come around the end of September that year like every other year I can remember except this one.

The annuals are still going strong ... don't remember ever having Lobelia flowering in October before! Blinking

I was really late transplanting some of the annuals, so some are just starting to flower now .... it's a good thing it was a mild fall! Whistling
