Overnight, in the early morning hours of Dec. 1, we had our first below freezing temperatures here on the mountain and the first frost on the cross ties.
I looked out and saw my garden folks waiting on the carport. "Please let us come inside for the winter like we always do," they said.
Good-bye to the flowers. I will look one morning soon and they will be totally gone.

Good-bye to to Cleome. Good-bye Garzinnia.
Good-bye May Night Salvia.
Good-bye New Guinea Impatiens and
and Rhododendron blooming in the fall, its buds set for spring.
Good-bye to Nashturtiums
and Japanese Lanterns with seed pods.
Good-bye to the Knock Out Roses and Camellia. They will be the last to go.
