Bloomin Tuesday!

We have had a killing hard frost here and the final tender annuals are done.
Poor dwarf Marigolds. They certainly lasted a long time .
Lovely red leaves on the Chinese azalea add a nice brightness to the side garden.

Cheery still are the flowering kale.

Tho the sunflowers plants are gone, the seed heads I've tied up on the arbour and the birds are happily enjoying.

Love your header photo! Jack Frost has been hanging around here the past few days too. Massive sunflower seed heads.

Yep once you get the first killing frost alot of the tender things just wither away. I'm sure the birds are so appreciative of that tasty winter treat. :)

Amazing....everything looks lovely.
The Chinese azalea is new to me...maybe a keeper for my garden.

Enjoyed your photos and the sharing of your passage into Winter. Love the seeds on your sunflowers, what lucky birds.

Wow !! They look like really large sunflower heads.
The kale is so pretty.

I love plants that have colorful fall leaves. The kale is wonderful! I always say I'm going to get some but never do. Jean

Frost this morning. Oh how I hate that the cold is coming.
