Here it is the end of October. We still have not had a killing frost in SE Kansas, so I still have some summer, as well as autumn flowers. These are some flowers on our patio.

Here is a hydrangea trying to bloom. I doubt if it makes it to a full bloom.

These were all taken today. Many may be gone in the morning if we have frost tonight. But I will still have the mums and asters for a while longer.

The petunias are on my patio on the north side of the house. There have been frosts in areas near us, but we have been spared so far. There is a chance of frost tonight, though.

Ditto!! GORGEOUS!!!! I can't get over your beatiful Petunias. I love them and plant them every single year. By mid-August they are always ratty-looking and are eaten up by caterpillars. Never fails. I can't even keep up with the caterpillars, they are often hard to see/find. You don't get caterpillars on your Petunias? Yours are so pretty for so long. Mine were caput since beginning of Sept. Your Mums are gorgeous too! TFS!

I bumped these up to the top so I can find them and look at them again and again. They are just gorgeous. Such vibrant colors.

Thanks for all the nice comments! Believe it or not, all the flowers are still blooming. We have escaped the frosts so far. Probably not for long, though.

I mentioned this in another thread. We've had freezing temps. My flowers planted inside a hollow wooden stump is still blooming. Does the wood provide protection to the roots? It really has me "stumped". Big Grin
