Fall color

I'm wondering what this coleus looks like after last night's frigid temperatures. It didn't occur to me to look at it this morning and it was dark when I got home tonight. Guessing it either looks like mush or a bunch of leafless stalks. There was also a beautiful purple potato vine to the right until the deer discovered it.

Its only 3 weeks until Winter Solstice. Happy, happy, Joy, joy! The daylight hours will be stretching out again! Even though my body won't actually start feeling that change until late January, just knowing that the daylight hours are soon to be incrementally longer puts me in a better mood. I don't do winter well. Posted by Picasa

I always call my Dad to let him know we've hit the turnaround and the days are getting longer. It might be all in my head but I feel like I breathe easier once we get there...even though we've got a long way to go yet! I guess we're lucky we don't live elsewhere and have snow or an even longer winter to deal with. I'm with you...I don't do winter well, either.
