Hi everyone! Hope you are all hanging in there. It's been a crazy few months here, after getting the hundred plants planted, the garden kept weeded etc I ended up with a new job that I was not looking for or expecting. My garden time has dwindled drastically but I did manage to find some time to weed last week. I also got a nice surprise blooming this morning, even after the freeze warning and frost last week she still bloomed and is thriving! Buckwheat getting all showy with 11 buds!

Thank you! I got it a couple years ago and she has lived in a pot until this spring when I had time to get her in the ground, and I was not expecting her to bloom this year (she didn't in spring) much less rebloom in November! The top bud opened this morning.
