Today’s GPOD comes to us from Lily Jacobi:

"I was expecting a frost on the evening of November 7th, so I went outside to see what was still blooming in my yard in Hooksett, New Hampshire. I brought in the last of the tropicals but some blooms were still holding on. Enjoy!"

This is a new passion flower to me this year, ‘Aphrodite‘s Purple Nightie’.  It climbed up my porch railing all summer long and I was surprised to see that it was still in full bloom and budded. I will be bringing it in and overwintering it for sure!

Chrysanthemum ‘Will’s Wonderful’. It blooms very late every year and gets very tall. I always want to move it and then always forget!

A dahlia I got at Walmart. I don’t know the name. 

Last but not least, I decided to bring in the remaining passion flower vines and insert them into a greenery arrangement on my dining room table. I am so pleased with it!
