Marigold Closeup ~ October 2 [10]

New London, Minnesota

I am just fascinated we still have flowers. Ordinarily the average date of the first killing frost in our area is September 17th--and here it is the first week of October and the lows are forecast to be in the 50s (F) for at least the next week. I imagine the insects are happy about it as well.

Stunning color. I was out today and still loads of wildflowers in bloom. Our first snowfall last year was October 16th.
