Remember about 10 days back, I showed you some photos of the flowers in my front garden?
They seem to have gotten their seasons mixed up.
They continue to grow and blossom with great gusto.
Despite the fact that we've had frost a number of times already since those first photos were taken.
Compare, if you will...
Are they alien life forms? Will they take over the planet? Will they survive the winter to add a splash of colour to the bleak frostiness of our Winnipeg snow? If they did survive the winter, would the rabbits take great delight in nibbling away at their green crispy stalks during the cold days to come?
I really should pull them up soon. The forecast is for rain for the next four days... and given that it's been below freezing at night now with great regularity, the chances of these flowers surviving and not turning into blackened stalks of slime are slim.
But I am loathe to interrupt their valiant flourish in the face of Fall... their piece de resistence, so to speak. Perhaps I will just let them do their thing and see what happens.
