Thanks very much. Mine are almost done and I have collected lots of dry flowers. They did not last as long this summer probably due to lack of rain. 🤷‍♀️ @gjones

I think we’re going to have an early winter this year. Birds are already starting to fly south and our fall rains are forecast to start next week. Maybe we’ll get a light frost and then have a nice long ‘Indian Summer’. That would he nice. Usually we’re dry on the prairies and down east you have lots of rain. It seems it reversed for this year!

I think you are right. We are going down to 8 degrees tomorrow night so I will have to bring in all my tropicals. No frost forecast yet. We have had reversed weather patterns this summer but I too am hoping for a long warm autumn. A few hummingbirds were filling up at our feeder yesterday. 😍

Chiming in Ladies! South Central Wisconsin had nonstop, heavy rains from early Sunday - late Monday night! We got almost 5" in our rain gage... 😳 Our entire year of weather seemed skewed, didn't/doesn't it?!? I believe the earth is literally off her axis! 🤣🗺🧭🌎 @hkyfvr @gjones

I went through a lot to get these. The fungus gnats ate away at the roots. Had to plant so many seeds too. At least I got some. My cosmos failed big time. I used my own seed and bought a pack for insurance but nothing came up. Weird. 🤦‍♀️🤷‍♀️ @kez001uk

comment

The fungus gnats lay eggs and their larvae feed on plant roots. New seedlings are their favourite I think. My cosmos were better last year. I must have overwatered or something. Beth had cosmos come back in her garden from last summer. Never happens with our Winters. 👍😊 @kez001uk
