April Showers Bring November Flowers?

I guess I think of flowers as a spring time occurrence; like blossoms that make fruit or seeds that mature in the summer. So I’m always pleased to see flowers this late in the year. Below are pictures of wild flowers I took today, 11/3/2018. It’s getting down in the 30’s at night, with ice on my truck and the tall weeds are turning brown.

The first picture isn’t of wildflowers, but a Tomato plant in the small garden. It’s a heritage variety, and it’s indeterminate, meaning it doesn’t grow fruit for a set time, but continues to grow them as long as weather permits. Notice it still has yellow flowers and small tomatoes starting.

The rest of the pictures were taken in the big garden.
