October is lingering into November. The temperature today was above 70, and the trees that still have leaves are gorgeous colors. Most of our garden is done for the year, but there are some signs of life.
Hollyhocks: one blooming, one budding
Native black-eyed susan
A couple yellow coneflower blooms
My best guess for this one is false aster. It’s been a cloud of white for weeks and shows no sign of stopping.
Ornamental kale – the only thing left in the pots of annuals
Reblooming rudbeckia – not as pretty as it was earlier this season, but spunky
One lonely dandelion
Lots and lots of calendula
The calendula is getting a head start on next year, too.
