Just a couple of wet inches last week on Long Island, but it was pretty for 24hours…
First killing frost means geraniums take up a second life indoors for the winter.
As the seasons turn, colors to remember
Labor Day, and thoughts of fall… except that it’s near 90deg again today! The long hot summer, dry except for occasional torrents of rain, has not been welcomed by many flowering plants and shrubs. Roses have hated it, and Montauk Daises (our favorite fall flowering shrub) are already brown and dessicated.
But a couple of bloomers have loved the heat! Geraniums are at the peak of their second flowering, and one hibiscus has produced glorious golden blooms all summer! So long may they last!
