    I agree, much better to rake leaves when it is 60 than after a snow!

    Your mystery flower looks familiar, I'm prety sure it isn't ragweed, but I can't think what it is. I'll think of it as soon as I shut down my laptop.


    Heather: I agree with you! I think it will get cold all of a sudden. That plant looks a bit like the orange cosmos or chocolate cosmos which have those lanceolate leaves. Did you plant a packet of seeds? Glad you posted...I've been missing them.

    Your weather is hotter than Austin's - the high barely touched 70ยบ today, twenty degrees cooler than on Saturday.

    Thanks for the closeup photo, Heather! Now that I can see the plant, and that promising BUD, I take back my ragweed guess!

    Is Layanee right? Any Cosmos seeds tossed around?

    That flower looks like an aster to me. I had a very similar mystery plant all summer and it just bloomed about 3 wks ago. A lovely dark pink aster!

    Nature will take her own sweet time at things, just to remind us that she is in charge.

    I'm with Layanee and Annie - the mystery plant has a decidedly cosmic look to it... And just think, if it does get cold (like this morning - brrr!, raking is a great way to feel toasty warm without having to crank the heat! (I have to put a pollyanna spin on it because sometimes I have no choice but to be out in the brrrr weather...)
