Fall is Coming - the last of the annual flowers?

Well, last night's forecast was for frost.  We got down to 34 degrees about 6:30 a.m.  This is not that early for first frost, but it always comes as a bit of a shock that the end of the tender crops is near.  

I covered some annual flowers in the hopes that we have a longer season. 

The zinnias, New England asters, marigolds, and nasturtiums all are still quite nice. 

And Ken's self seeded morning glories in the garden are still blooming.

The bees are busy collecting nectar.

So, we are ready, and with greenhouses, our season is extended, but the leaves are turning and fall is coming
