Lovely photos. I'm glad you have a cat who also enjoys the beauty of a sunset...lol.

Brrrrr - your winter seems to be coming along far too quickly, just like we're saying the same thing about our summer.

Nice photos! What kind of plant is in the second picture? It looks very interesting. I really like photos of plants and flowers with snow or frost on them.

BTW we have several new members this week if you'd care to visit them. Check the list. :)

Alice, we usually get a little snow before Halloween, but it never stays. This stuff was mostly melting on contact; it was a bit of a challenge to find some snow that had managed to stick without melting immediately. Real winter is still far away. Now we're headed for what Tolkien called the "fag end of autumn", grey and dank and rather cheerless, with the occasional glorious day to remind us of what we're missing. At least we get about one more week of fall colour before grey takes over. A month of that and snow is welcome; it brightens everything up.

Tricia, that is a creeping sedum. Sedum spurium. Great in the ground, great in pots, hardy as nails, easy to grow... I've even put a few sprigs in a tiny vase with mini roses.
