seasonal confusion

Oh, Impatiens,


and Snapdragons,


how I love your ignorance that tomorrow is December.


Your incessant blooming has saved your lives. I intended to pull you up months ago, but I just can't bear to get rid of still blooming flowers.


I will enjoy your beauty until you either give up or the first snow wipes you out. If you so desire, feel free to stick around until next spring. Your colorful blooms will lift my spirits on the imminent dreary and cold days ahead.

Wow. See, that's just unfair.

Wow...and all we have in our garden is 40 inches of snow...
