Last night, we had our hard freeze. There were still an amazing number of flowers still in bloom yesterday. That is so rare for an early November day in upstate New York, that I wanted to share some of these last blooms with you.
Most of these pictures were taken at Cutler Botanical Gardens, the free botanical garden run by the Cornell Cooperative here in Binghamton.
These blooms are gone now, dead, but this is what they looked like yesterday.
A single pink rose.
A pink multiflora.
Our weather has been so strange. Saturday it was in the 50's and the trees glowed - we were having a peak foliage day, of sorts, as the final trees were finally starting to turn color.
Yesterday was in the 30's, with snow flurries.
And now...who knows?
