The season is over or almost over for most of us. Now that the weather has cooled down, I can expect one more good flush of blooms in the coming month. Many of my roses had shut down in the heat of summer and hadn't produced anything spectacular in the way of blooms for a couple of months, but the falling temperatures always revitalize them in autumn.
Winter is a good time to import photos from the threads into the database. I haven't done this on a grand scale since 2017, so I'll have a lot to do when it gets too cold to spend the day outside. If you don't want your photos to be added to the database by anyone other than you, you can opt out of this process. Go to your settings (preferences) on your profile page and answer "No" to the question "Allow your forum photos to be associated with plants in the database?" Then click on "Save your changes" before you leave the page.
The thumbnail photo for this month is of October Moon, one of Paul Barden's exquisite floribundas.
