Impatiens finally succumb to the cold weather

Well, the cold weather of the past couple of nights did a number on my  impatiens. They were holding up very well but today they're gone. And, with the change from daylight saving time, I think winter is definitely coming to the bluegrass state. I still have lots of leaves to rake whenever I can find some time. I's always a bit sad to see the garden look so barren during the winter, but I know that Mother Nature will make a splashy appearance in a few months. Until then, I guess I will bundle up and try to stay warm.

I'm so lucky that Impatiens can be grown all year round in my spot on the planet ... and I love them. I imagine you've put your garden to bed now and are staying safe and snug indoors.

Thanks Bernie, I would enjoy spending the holidays in warm sunny Australia instead of here in Kentucky!

Lol, Bluegras. While it certainly is hot, it's been anything but sunny in my north-eastern corner of Oz. We've had rain almost non-stop now for three weeks and the predictions over the Christmas weekend are not good. Apparently we're about to experience a deluge of rain ... it's our wet season here.
