These Narrow Leaf Zinnias, Angelonia and Sun Loving Coleus have done great in this area.
It's 41 degrees here (5 Celsuis) with a threat of light frost this weekend. Today I will be taking cuttings and gathering seeds for next Spring.
Tootsie has posted her sprouting Loofah seeds that I sent her. If you would like to see how I harvested them, click a couple of posts back or go to my sidebar at the bottom and click on the Loofah post.
**Update**: The tree that I asked about in my last post was identified by http://nanak-mygardenpath.blogspot.com and confirmed by http://sweetbay103.blogspot.com ...Baccharis halimifolia--Salt Marsh Elder, Sea Myrtle or Groundsel. Zones 5-9, tolerates a wide range of soil types (wet, dry, brackish), deciduous, multitrunked, 10-15 feet high. Can be pruned to any shape suitable for your garden.
Today I am Thankful for the crispness of Autumn.
