Fall freezes

101301_011.jpgAs advertised, here we are at the first weekend in October, and we are predictably at full peak of fall color. It’s a lazy, rainy day, though, and windy.

We have a freeze warning tonight. I’ve spent a lot of time trying to decide if I should go try to save some of my flower boxes by covering them up, or just give in and let them go. It was supposed to be a fairly hard freeze, down to 25 or so, so I’m not sure covering up would even help them. But after a couple of nights of frost, it’s supposed to stay above freezing for a while again, and it’d be nice to still have flowers.
