It took it’s sweet time, but winter has finally arrived. The temperatures dipped to about 29 degrees last night and in the morning everything was covered in a nice layer of frost. Sadly, this means saying good by to the pepper plants. I hope to plant some more pea plants in their place. The chard is slowly starting to fade. I can’t say that I’ll grow it again. I just don’t have a lot of use for it. I’d rather experiment with something new next spring. I’ve been happily circling the recent seed catalogs with interesting new plants.

Chard still sticking around
Most of my flowers are gone but I do have a few stragglers. They look so nice this morning with a dusting of frost.

    Pretty pics! Sorry for the demise of your peppers. They stopped here in September, I think, so you had a good (climate) run. I love to grow chard but agree that I don’t often actually use it. It’s more of an ornamental in my garden, it’s so pretty! I even love it when it bolts in the spring and grows 5 ft. tall!

    The flowers look pretty with the frost. Although even though they are pretty, I am guessing you didn’t really want the frost ๐Ÿ™‚

    Ahhh… it’s the time of year when everything fades into winter slumber. I love how you’ve captured these shots. Such beautiful frosting on the flowers! It’s such a nice contrast. Spring will be here before you know it. ๐Ÿ™‚
