Bloomin Tuesday!

Almost the end of October and surprisingly there are a few flowers bravely flowering . Our weather this week has been unusually warm 18 to 20 C thru the day and 10 to 14 C at night , lovely and mild. This month only light frosts on 2 nights. The prediction changes for the worse by the end of week with temperatures dropping drastically.
Ageratum
Flowering Kale

Japanese Anemone
Fuchsia and marigolds

Cordyalis and a small hydrangea bud.

I am guessing in another week or so even these brave plants will be done for the season..

Beautiful flowers! I live in a small canyon in New Mexico. The wind really blows here and it kills any flowers I try and plant.

We have had warm weather here as well. I was out in my t-shirt raking leaves! I expect the temperature to drop here shortly. There is still lots blooming in your garden. The Japanese anemone is my favorite.
