Yesterday was the first hard freeze we've had this Winter; up until then, many of my flowers were still behaving as if it was much warmer! Luckily, I read the forecast and took some pictures before everything shriveled up and turned black- a kind of final hurrah to my garden of 2011 if you will....
So here they are.;
this rose; Perle d'Or has been blooming since just before my birthday in April....
that's .eight months!
these are African daisies and they too have been going and going and going...
I'm really hoping they've reseeded but if not, you can be sure I'll be getting as many as I can next year- cheap, beautiful and long lasting; my favorite kind of flower!
where I live, snapdragons and pansies do bloom on and off all winter- I just couldn't resist sharing how pretty they are ;)
At the time I took these pictures, we also still had some peppers and pineapple sage going strong in the veggie garden, I just didn't make it back that far.
And, on a final note, my art classes started back up yesterday.
Here are my 5th graders working on their Name Kaleidoscopes- so easy yet SO effective! I'll share more pictures when they're finished.
I'll be back soon to share pictures from my Christmas camps, which was a blast!
