We Really Love Our Plants!

This little plant (a sunflower) was just about to bloom.  The Herbal Husband put some insulating fabric and this paper bag around it last night.  Hope for the best!  We are going to have an Indian summer now that we have had our first frost.  Temperatures back up to almost 70 by the end of the week.  I think the nasturtiums are done.  P.S. The sunflower has survived but has some leaf damage!!!  Hopefully it should bloom later this week.  Hurry, hurry little sunflower!  Hope you are enjoying the weather wherever you may be!

I've got a picture of the sunflower in partial bloom. Maybe tomorrow since we have had rain, it will really be open! It isn't going to be really cold until next weekend, early November. It was a really strange season!
