Freeze Watch

... Freeze watch in effect from late tonight through Saturday morning... The National Weather Service in Wakefield has issued a freezewatch... which is in effect from late tonight through Saturday morning. Strong high pressure will build over the mid Atlantic andCarolinas tonight into Saturday. Clear skies and light winds will allow temperatures away from the water to drop to between 30 and 35degrees. Precautionary/preparedness actions... A freeze watch means sub-freezing temperatures are possible.These conditions could kill crops and other sensitive vegetation.Could spell the end for my beloved Morning Glories...boooooo
Well, there are always the pansies...

For some reason, this Hydrangea decided to send up one last bloom...

And there is a last hurray for the coneflowers...
