Finally lost my rose last night!

My dianthus, miniature rose and snapdragons finally bought it in last night's hard frost. They were flowering along merrily until then.
This is pretty bizarre. I'm on a hill near the NH/VT/MA border. I have never before had flowers alive anywhere near this late before. Usually they're gone by the second week of October.

I still have an allium and a mum still in bloom! I think one aster is still going, I have to take a walk to that side of the yard. It has been mild here in southern NH as well.

lawn the day I posted the original message, I went out today to find that the rose, snapdragons, and most of the dianthus are still alive and have flowers. I did lose some blue salvia I'd forgotten to mention.
The rose is blooming against a rock outcropping which probably holds heat. The other stuff must just be tougher than nails as it is on an exposed hillside. --Jenny

Hi Jenny, why don't you send this as an email to the Environmental Wackos who are telling us of Global Warming, when scientifically..it's baloney!

Would these "environmental wackos" include Harvard Professor James McCarthy? Perhaps, Michael (caseri9), you need to enroll in:
Global Warming 101
"Building on earlier climate science work by William Herschel, John Tyndall and Joseph Fourier, investigations regarding humans' role in global warming began in 1896, when Nobel Prize-winning physicist Svante Arrhenius examined contributions of carbon dioxide emissions to increases in atmospheric temperature. In the 1930s, meteorologist G.S. Callendar gathered temperature records from more than 200 weather stations around the world and attributed temperature increases to greenhouse gas emissions from industry.
In the 1950s, Gilbert Plass' research on atmospheric CO2 and infrared radiation absorption added to a growing scientific consensus that humans contribute to global warming. In 1956, Plass announced that human activities were raising the average global temperature.
Also, beginning in 1958, Charles David Keeling began to document atmospheric carbon dioxide levels from Mauna Loa volcano in Hawaii. His findings of a dramatic increase in CO2-referred to as the "Keeling Curve"-are considered some of the most important long-term data relating to humans' role in global warming. Additionally, 1966 and 1977 United States National Academy of Sciences reports made clear links between human activities and global warming.
NASA scientist James Hansen's 1988 testimony to the U.S. Congress marked solidified scientific concern for human-caused global warming. He said he was "99 percent certain" that warmer temperatures were caused by the burning of fossil fuels and not solely a result of natural variation and that "it is time to stop waffling so much and say that the evidence is pretty strong that the greenhouse effect is here."
Since the formation of the IPCC in 1988 by the United Nations Environment Program and the World Meteorological Organization, a steady flow of IPCC reports have continued to support the notion that humans are contributing to global warming. For example, in 1990 at the World Climate Conference in Geneva, over 700 scientists from around the world gathered to review the IPCC First Scientific Assessment Report in order to set the stage for the crafting of the 1992 United Nations Framework Convention on Climate Change (UNFCCC). After their review, they released the Scientists' Declaration, which focused on human-caused global warming, and read, "A clear scientific consensus has emerged on estimates of the range of global warming that can be expected during the 21st century.... Countries are urged to take immediate actions to control the risks of climate change." Another salient assertion regarding human contributions to warming manifested in the Second Scientific Assessment Report, released in 1995. The consensus statement strongly asserted that there has been "a discernible human influence" on the global climate." http://www.fair.org/index.php?page 78
