I had to bring all my plants indoors. Windchill last night and tonight is in the upper 30s°F. Too cold except for the Ipomoea purpurea.

The perennials are still blooming, easing my sadness over the end of the outdoor growing season.

Hope you got them all in safe - and that there is still room for you inside... Smiling

Great looking perennial on your picture - very attractive "3D" structure on the petals - can you help with a name? Is it a "cream colored" I. Alba? Or I. albivenia?

We didn't get quite that low here Joseph, thankfully since I'm never ready to bring them in. Hopefully by the weekend.
I agree I hate to see it end Sad
It happens in a flash, but the memory of it last forever. It can not be borrowed or stolen, and it is of no earthly good until it is given away. So if in your hurry you meet someone who is too weary to smile, leave him one of yours, for no one needs a smile quite as much as he who has none to give...

Thank you, Carsten. The flowers are from a couple Ipomoea albivenia plants.

Ronnie, it got to 39°F actual temperature this morning. Too cold, but the purpurea seem unfazed.

Strange Joseph since you are further South than I am. We got down to about 44 Thumbs down
