Well, the weather people are predicting patchy frost for this evening. My house sits in a low spot, so "patchy" typically means "at Kristi's house". I'm always telling Jason that I think our house and lawn are in a special climate zone separate from everyone else in town. Our flowers bloom last, our tomatoes freeze first, and our grass takes exceptionally long to get green. I've learned to outsmart the weather, though, and I made sure to pick ALL of my available produce this afternoon, so none of it will have mushy frozen spots in the morning. My flowers, on the other hand, cannot be saved, and so I decided to post this commemorative photo of them in all their glory.
Just in case this possible "patchy frost" becomes a reality, I wanted to be able to say 'Good Bye' flowers!
It's always sad to see the flowers go at the end of the summer, but I know it makes the first bloom in spring all that much more awesome!
