    Those are gorgeous pictures! I miss that Some people here in FL start wearing fur coats (I'm not kidding) when its down to 65, I think they're nuts! I get funny looks when I'm outside in shorts and t-shirt when it's in the 60's. Wussies!
    Great Googly Moogly!

    Beware of the yellow snow!

    I like fall the best, but winter is okay... at least in the beginning as jimscott and scotty mentioned. But it's way to long... snow for at least 4 months, and a couple years ago it was sleeting in the middle of april! Fall in New England is the best, with the trees coloring up. Here's a pic I took in our front yard.

    I don't want another winter like last years. I had to thaw out three frozen sewer lines. That wouldn't have been near so bad if people who new about the problem would have called them in before 6:30 and on the day they froze. Had one that had been backing up and running down a guys drive for a couple days before his neighbor on the next street over noticed and called it in. Yeah, ain't nothing like standing over a manhole for six hours in the dark and wind on a nice cold winters night running a jetter full of cold water that you're praying doesn't freeze up on you before the line is open to make you really appreciate winter.

    Oh, yippee for winter.

    Man I looked out on the porch this morning and I saw - frost! That probably did in the D. binatas out there and the stray capensises but hopefully not the pygmy sundews.

    I knew frost was coming last night, but I didnt bother to do anything with any of my plants..I let them get frosted, on purpose..its good for them..(VFTs and Sarrs)

    The D. binata should be able to take it just fine..
    but I did forget I have a D. capensis pot outside!
    they might not be so happy with the frost..
    the capensis is my only "tender" CP at the moment..
    I completely forgot about it!

    When I left for work this morning, there was a nice frost on everything..
    its the "killing frost" that will wipe out the Tomatos and other veggies..
    all the pumpkin leaves had "melted" away to nothing overnight..
    but im not worried about the CPs at all..
    It was probably just a frost on the leaves, there wont actually be a solid freeze down into the media or any frozen roots..I doubt it fell below 30 degrees..
    no problem for the VFTs and sarrs..and probably fine for the binata..
    I will check the binata and capensis when I get home..see how they look!
