C. montana?  I thought that bloomed much earlier in the season.

Fridge - 17 yrs, I guess good enough.

Don't you hate it when appliances die?
Re the season. We've had hard frosts here the past 2 nights. It's been so
warm that many of my trees & shrubs haven't changed color. Hostas went flat
during the night with minimal color change. My Clemantis montana has been
blooming! I'm looking out at grapevines & trees with dead dry grren/brown
leaves. The dogwood, linden & maple have a little color, but that's all.
Here I can't wait for the leaves to fall now. It'll be an improvement.

I generally keep an eye on the 10 day forecast to plan on what to do when.
We did get a 33 the other night, but it's not like it's 33 ALL night. The
10 day forecast shows the lowest low should be 34 and the highest high/low
is actually 10 days out on Oct 20 at 58/44.

I dug my PFGrass, brug, and plectranthus yesterday; also some Mirabilis.
I'll wait on my biggest Mirabilis until after a hard frost.  I figure it
would be best to treat it just like a dahlia.  This was a 1 gallon
containing 2 first season tubers that I dug last year.  I'm dying to see
how big the tubers are now. I brought some potted (2in) shrub cuttings in
from the backyard to moved up to a slightly bigger size if needed.  I'll
overwinter them in the garage.  Jetbeed, viburnum, lilacs, beautybush.

My fridge died Friday so I've been busy cleaning that up to get ready for
the new one.

Bringing my plants indoors today.  It is COLD.  36 degrees this
morning.  GROSS.  My jade tree has produced so MANY offspring, and I
have 4-5 large pots of them, and two pots of young startings.  Gotta
find homes for them all.  My hib from David and another hib that I
bought are being brought in.  My starfish cactus that Jim gave me
(that bloomed four times this summer) is being brought in.  My pencil
cactus and chicks and hens are coming in too.  I know you can leave
the chicks and hens out there, but I put them in a shallow terra cotta
pot and I'm not sure they could take the winter here.  I think we are
going to have a bad one.
Pam, that Texas Star Hibiscus that you gave me looks like it has seed
pods on them?  Is that right?  This is the first year they have
bloomed, and they are beautiful.  I'm gathering my datura seeds and
marigold seeds, as well as my moon flower.  Gonna TRY to get out there
and gather some zinnia seeds if time permits.

Oh, I hadn't thought about our legacy plants...we have two from my

grown from a plant my father & mom had in their GA home. We just redid
our wills and never thought about the plants.

Frost possible here tonight, but I think we'll miss it tonight.
Trees are turning - dogwoods have been turning for a month,
but others are bright now. I've found new homes for most of
my large potted plants - we just can't handle them any longer.
I had a camellia that I grew from seed my father sent me before
he died in 1980. He had a large collection of camellias in Alabama.
He said this might be something special - I never got to discuss it
with him, but it seems to have a drooping habit - branches curve
down and the plant is compact. Anyway, I gave it to a friend who
has a conservatory. I gave my large jade plant that was given to
me by a late District Director in 1988 when she moved to Calif. to
the mansion house at Lasdon Park & Arboretum. They have taken
a couple of my large plants before. Since that is the office of the
FGCNYS District, it seemed appropriate to give it to them. I have
offered a large Sprengerei (sp.?) that I grew from seed a number of
years ago to a neighbor. She hasn't picked it up yet, but that's more
nearly hardy to a light frost than other things. I hate to see my
container plantings go, but that's what happens this time of year.
At least I found good homes for some of them.

Had our first frost last night and another expected tonight. Sigh,
winter
is
coming! The trees just started to turn in the last 48 hours. Crazy
weather.

Planned on putting away all the summer things but due to the rain all
week,
it
is just too wet. Maybe tomorrow. So instead I slept all day, no
motivation.
DH has a bad cold so I am hoping I am not coming down with it.

my email was broken, it's been so quiet. But it's not I guess. Supposed
to
get
down to 28 tonight. Brrr. Had to put the lemon and lime in their little
greenhouse and crank up the humidifier--we use the humidifier to heat
the
greenhouse. It seems to work... at least it did last year through
subfreezing
temps and light snow storms. Trees, maples anyway, are starting turn;
dogwood's been red for a month or so--first breezy day and it'll likely
be a
hatrack. Interesting thing about the maples: one across the circle died
not
too long after it leafed out in spring; now the neighbors have one that
looks
like tapiola.
