The Last Holdout!

The picture at the top of my blog was taken earlier in the summer, when this begonia plant was blooming profusely, giving us beautiful blossoms to welcome visitors with.  The frost has blighted every other plant in the yard, but this plant, hiding in the corner by the front door continues to deliver.  We've never had another plant last so long in this place.  As you can see by the top picture, all the flower beds have been prepared for winter, including planing tulip and hyacinth bulbs, by the three families who live in our cul-de-sac.  Thank goodness for such sharing and caring people.  We have seen much goodness and sharing in the last months!

We love best that which lasts longest in the garden. Nice to still have a blossom!

Is this the "last rose of summer" non rose? What wonderful neighbors you have. If the nice weather holds just a little longer I may get my bulbs in the ground this year.
