Flower Harvest Before Frost

Autumn Flower Harvest Before FrostHere are the flowers and fruit gathered from the garden the evening before the first frost here in southeastern Pennsylvania. I had hoped to spare them from frost damage so that I could paint them. Surprisingly despite temperatures in the low 30s, the blooms left behind in the garden all made it through the frost just fine, including roses, petunias, cosmos, sage, and irises. No second frost yet and all of these continue to happily bloom outside!
