After our October snowstorms, we’ve had a relatively mild stretch of weather here. Some of my potted chrysanthemums are continuing to bloom, and one even has quite a few buds that may come to flower, so long as the warmer temperatures continue and I remember to keep it watered!
I’m particularly fond of this one’s colors!
The spring-like temperatures have brought a few surprises, such as this rogue pansy in a container of what had been vincas.
Finally, in the house, my “Christmas” cactus is almost done with its yearly show. Somehow, I forgot to take a picture of it at its best. Here it is both in bud, about three weeks ago, and as it is today. I was worried it was going to drop all of its buds after I brought it in the house, but it held them and had a beautiful flush of blooms shortly after Halloween!
