A couple of weeks ago I went out to my flowerbeds and chopped a few of the perennials down to the ground in preparation for winter. My daisies and flax were done blooming and my iris plants were starting to turn brown. Well, what was I met with about a week later? Rebellion. Fresh blooms! The dear little plants weren't ready to go to bed for the winter. The flax was 1/2 as tall, but thicker and blooming. The daisy patch sent up one last stalk for the summer and it was blooming proudly in the sun. It was such a surprise, but it made my day!
