STILL WAITING FOR THE FIRST FROST OF THE SEASON

While the frost seems afraid to arrive, there are still blooms in gardens: roses, dahlias, Shasta daisies, hydrangea, camellia, hothouse marigolds.  The alder, dogwoods and rhodies are already budding out for next spring.  Mushrooms, of course, are rampant thanks to the reign of rain.
