They didn't predict this yesterday. Today, yes. Last night? No.

Thank goodness I took what photos I did yesterday. The trees still have too many leaves on them if we get another BIG snow.. this was just a teeny dusting. Sun's going to be popping up over the horizon soon & melt all this away, free water! Yay! And next Monday it's supposed to be like 70degs again. Go figure...

It's pretty, Toni, but you can have it. Denver has some of the wildest weather swings in the country.
Of all the things I've lost, I miss my mind the most.

OMG! Not ready for winter....

I'm glad for your free water. I hope your roses are ready for winter (even if it precedes fall this year.)

I have been worrying about wintry weather. I sprayed my whole rose garden with Freeze Pruf two days ago. But of course, the low last night was 55 here. And the roses, if they were sentient beings would be wondering why I bothered. That goes double for me.

We got a skiff of snow, but the temps dipped to -5.3ºC, which is 23ºF. Many annuals are done. We should have some warm days to do "garden Clean-up" and i will move my container roses into the veggi garden

Well, I'm grateful for a good gardening season this year. Mostly, I'm sad to see it go. There is a fresh infestation of aphids that respond to my almost daily soap spraying in a kind of whack-a-mole fashion, and I'm seriously hoping they will be wiped out soon by frost. When it strikes I have a lot of dahlias to dig up. Maybe my "living mulch" for new rose beds this year can help me tame new territory next year. They really push bloom season into fall nicely, too.
