Jack Frost

He made a visit to the area..he left some signs..

IMG_8799 On my Peegee Hydrangea..it did well this year..it must thrive on neglect.

IMG_8801  On my stupid Forsythia ‘Meadowlark’ that never blooms…not even one lousy tiny yellow bloom..nothing..nada..zip…zero..zilch. 

IMG_8858 On my Spirea that grows on the edge of the old parking lot.  He never looked real good..even when I gave him some attention.. but he looks good covered in frost..

Jack Frost This one made me smile and think of a friend( From My Back Porch) and her husband(Jack) who live in Indiana. They hit a bit of a rough patch awhile back..stop by and say Hi!   This sign is from Bemidji, Minnesota.

Has Jack Frost visited you yet? :)

  5. No frost yet but getting closer. Hydrangea - - that is the one I was trying to think of the other day when talking to my sister - - - they are the ones that will turn pink or blue depending on the ph of the soil - - right? So how early did you get out in the morning to get those great pictures? I am glad Mr. Frost didn't make you slip and fall.

  8. No frost, not even the hard freeze because we live in town. But it will happen soon. My gardens are all slowly shrinking down. I have my phlox and cone flowers cut back and will rake leaves onto the beds.

  9. Lovely photos - love it when leaves get covered in icy eyelashes. As you know, we've had both frost and snow already. Now it's a balmy +10 C again!

  11. Just enough frost to kill the pumpkin vines and nastursiums two weeks ago, nothing since and nothing but lot-o-rain in sight. Why is it that we insist on keeping plants that don't live up to their expectations? Though some plants that don't do what they ought get kept around here for the fall color they provide. We don't get much color, especially in the garden beds, so if something happens to give us a tiny show even, it gets to stay!

  12. No not yet even though we had a low of 40° this morning, pretty chilly for Southern Georgia, I have much to do outside before the frost comes here, and my greens need to get bigger too, it is coming though and I know soon, hugs

  16. Ha! That's a good one! Even Jack got a chuckle out of that! Speaking of rough patch, Jack had surgery this week to have two hernias patched. He's not happy when we make him laugh right now....it's just too painful! He's doing good though....thanks for stopping by to check on us.
