Show me your October flowers!

We finally received our first frost last week...and it was a hard freeze, with temps to -7C. While the tomatoes and squash are now but a distant summer memory, most of the other garden crops survived (including peppers!), and my Jersualem Artichokes have finally decided to flower (with a forecast of snow, of course). What's still blooming in your garden?

We have been getting frost here daily for weeks now (first frost was Aug 31) but I have a die hard pink Potentilla and some petunias that are still in full bloom.

I have a couple of things - a pansy and some calendula, oh, and some primula. My rose, Henry Kelsey, is still blooming. I looked at it today, and the blooms look fresh not frozen.

Okay, i put some pictures in the Gallery. As i said there, not the best in the world because they were taken with my phone. But there are a few flowers out there - most of them a surprise to me - and lots of nice foliage.
