Fall Freeze Up
What a disappointment. First day of fall, and we have already had a hard frost in the Edmonton area. The flowers in the flowerbeds are all a wilted looking black colour, as are many of the hardy aquatic plants. Its funny that the water lily pads don't seem to suffer from the same effects of a hard frost. Perhaps its because the lily pads are floating on the water and that takes the frost out of the leaves. What do you think?
