Some end of season pics!

I have been really busy now that summer is over, but I've still been taking care of the plants despite the lack of updates.
Here's some pics of what has been going on in my yard over the past month. First few pics were taken in Early October, the last few were taken today. Still no frost yet so everything is alive for now (next week is a different story!)


Yucca filamentosa with Geraniums. Still looking great!

Mandevilleas are winding down, but still lots of blooms 

The big plumeria was really hard to bring indoors this year, but I managed. Not sure if I'll be able to get it to fit inside next year though. It's about 15 feet tall!

Camellia "Long Island Pink" blooms.

Pretty Princess Plumeria managed to make some blooms before having to go inside.

Huge Adondila heading indoors

Mandevilla losing steam because of the cooler weather and the incredible drought.

These pics were all taken as of today.... November 9th. Still no freeze or frost yet, but this coming week will be a very cold one. 

Butterfly ginger blooms are getting smaller with the cool weather, but the fragrance is as nice as always!
