After the freeze

The mercury dropped to 21 degrees Thursday morning
 breaking the previous record of 25 degrees set on Nov. 14, 1968.
Frost bloom on the salvia

Remenants of the summer garden.

Colour on the oak leaf hydrangea

Brugs laid to waste...

Well... I can still use the pepperz...

There's still seeds to collect...
(chenopodium giganteum, crotalaria spectabilis, and sesbania herbacea)

The sassafras have great colouration... Should probably collect some leaves (for recipe seasoning) before they all drop...

Goodbye Summer

A final visit from the Florida state butterfly (zebra longwing) to the tithonia rotundifolia.

A last flush of bloom from the Brugmansias

And tibouchina urvilleana

Time to collect seeds, like these few collected from the Vernonia angustifolia.

The weatherman is predicting low 20's for tonight...
