Buds to bloom.....

An interesting look of some buds that may make it through the freeze.  Mums are tough and I may throw an old towel over them to get them through one bad night.

I hate getting older and having to make myself do stuff.  I kept putting this off but late Sunday evening I went out with this crockery bowl and some scissors and collected seed. I will try to bag them by colors.  This photo shows the beginning of the cutting and I took many more photos of bowls of flowers while I kept filling the bowl .

Yes I am milking the petunia shots for all they are worth.  It's just that they are the last of what is living and I have to keep shooting the good compositions.  I had to water these plants that are in a pot as they were really dry.  

I am studying with students the history of the Buddhism religion today.  It is interesting to see where these religions start. World History, American History, and other related subjects I will visit today. 

Thanks for stopping by......

The mum buds are going to be spectacular. Do you and Della usually put out a pumpkin for Halloween?
That's a great photo of the petunias. We still have knock out roses, gardenias and lavender blooming.
Hope your day at school has gone smoothly. Sister (Karen) sure comes home with funny stories of her 2nd graders!!!

the petunias are very Georgia O'Keeffe

Do the zinnias make seed still after they're cut off? I thought you had to let them dry on the stem. I had some pretty ugly zinnias out there while I waited.

The white petunia is still beautiful this late in the season.

Sounds like your teaching assignment was good today. I had Grade 2, an absolute pet of a class, and a double prep period too.
