Kia hora te manno
Kia whakapapa paumamu te moana
Kia tere te Karohirohi

May the calm be widespread
May the sea glisten like the greenstone
And may the glimmer of summer dance across your pathways

Just a wee bit of color left.

Last year, we got our first frost around the 6th of December, and I remember still having a few flowers blooming in the garden.

This year is the same. The pretty cerise pink of a Mum, is brightening a corner of the garden

and this red one also.

There is one hardy rose refusing to give up yet, and sleep for the winter

But the biggest surprise of all, was one single gladioli bloom I discovered starting to bloom. This one I picked and brought inside to enjoy.

I never did dig up my gladioli. Oh well. I will just buy more.
You Mums are superb!

I want to find some mums that look like daisies like yours do.

I hope your glad opens up inside.

Your flowers are lovely and colorful! The colors are so bright that they can easily call your attention when you go in the garden. I hope your flowers grow even more beautiful. I wish I can have a garden as colorful as yours when I get a chance to buy some flowers in Indianapolis. Thanks for sharing!
