Thank you so much Betty for commenting.

It appears the season has ended here as the nights have become
too cool for the flowers to bloom. Am going to cut out the remaining
scapes, and allow these plants to prepare for winter.

I have posted the good, bad, and ugly as they say.
Thanks to all of you for your valuable comments. Much appreciated!!! Group hug

Oh, how I hate to hear that you're cutting off those scapes! And I can't imagine nights that cool since we're getting down to maybe 70 at night -- if we're lucky! It's supposed to go back up to about 99 all weekend again -- I'm sooooooo looking forward to cooler weather!

But I bet you can hardly wait to see all the beauties you've shown us next spring/summer! And I can't wait to see the pictures!

Here's to hopefully having a great season next year for all of us.
No more strange weather, please.

At least I have all the threads of everyones' flowers to enjoy during
the winter months while preparing the ever growing wish list. nodding

SUPPOSED TO GET TO 31 TONIGHT SO PUT the potted plants in the greenhouse and covered the Corn,squash and tomatoes with tarps. Next 2 night freezing also and then warm. I hate it as every year it get down cold enough to kill everything and then can be fine for 2 months. Could use the 2 months to get more veggies and let the DL root better. Cut the last 4 scapes off today. 2 seedlings and 2 registered ones but tossed SW Sepal Streaker as the scape just popped up and was so small it will never make it. Maybe next year. One seedling I am excited to see will open tomorrow. Joan Derifield X Huckleberry Candy,. Will take Pics. Hope no one looses anything you have been waiting for.

Boy I have to get busy. I have no scapes cut off yet. My hyard looks absolutely horrible with all these dead scapes everywhere. Well I have one thing in my defense. A lot of them had seed pods that weren't ripe enough to pick yet. I am still waiting on about 20 and then I am done for the season.

Covered everything really well last night and will again tonight. Nice and sunny today so may get cold for sure tonight. Got only to 35 so no hard freeze. The seedling scapes I brought in. Have seen the 1st. one before but the 2nd. is the one I was real curious about. For sitting 2 days inside in water and 2 weeks of cool nights it did pretty well. Hope it gets even better next year

Gosh, I can't imagine having to deal wuth a possible overnight freeze in September. Much too early for me. My tomatoes are still producing athough they are near finished and the daylilies are growing nicely.

Yes, Stephanie, they bloomed out well and are lookin' great. Good that you thought to
bring them inside. When I saw the registered flowers bloom unrecognizable,
I knew I couldn't trust that the seedlings would bloom true.

How fast the plants can shut down! The earliest trees to lose their leaves
have already done so.

The potatoes have been dug, the area cleaned and tilled, with mustard
and turnip greens coming up. Still waiting on the kale to show itself.
And that ends the veggie gardening for the year.

Wish I could get some seeds from Sabine Bauer. 99% of the time it won't set a pod and its pollen hasn't worked for me either.

Thanks Vickie, and yes, Sabine is a good parent, I think.

Cindy, after I moved Sabine to a better spot, it set more pods, although
it does seem to have on-off years of doing so.

I can't believe some of the evergreens have scapes popping up, again.
With temperatures in the low forties, and a low of 39, this simply amazes
me, especially for evergreens.

I didn't get all the scapes cut off either, as I have been trying to get
some house painting done. So, the daylilies have taken the back
seat for attention, so to speak.

It may have been due to weather, Margaret. They do that sometimes when
the plant feels a need to preserve energy. Or, maybe not. Green Grin!
