Unusually mild temps are lingering in the Western U.P. With the half-way point of November behind us, Keweenaw thoughts will be turning to a ground cover of white soon. With that in mind today, we get a final burst of color from two of our Guest Gallery Camists. Both Susan Hooker and Joyce Tormala spotted some splendid blooms still hanging on amidst the falling leaves and the cooler temps. Just as the first blossoms of the spring are so welcomed for the brilliance they add, these final flowers give us one last saturation of color before the ground freezes up for it's winter rest. Enjoy!

Good morning. These pictures certainly brighten up a rainy day down here!

What is the name of that flower?

Good morning all, I wish I was up there to see the beauty! Can't wait until May!

The top picture looks like a day lily and the bottom picture like roses.

My rose is blooming for the 3rd time this season at this very moment! And the pansies are still in full bloom too - they will make it over the winter.

Gorgeous. Oh to be on the lake this morning!

A day off work and I couldn't sleep past 6AM, what with the rain pounding on the roof above my head. A cup of coffee, the morning paper, and now two lovely photos of the last flowers of the season. Thank you for a good start to a peaceful grey day.

Oh, does any one know more about the Tahcquamenon Brew Pub fire? I will be sad to hear it is all gone. I enjoyed many a cold beer on a warm summer day there.

What lovely pictures, and Mary is right: last color to soak up before winter. Is that why we love red in christmas decorations? And candles have universal appeal?

Thanks to Susan and Joyce.

We still have flowers at our home in the Detroit area. Wonderful fall.

Therese, According to the Channel 6 (Marquette) news last
night, just the Camp 33 Gift Shop burned and they were able to
save the restaurant and Brew Pub.

I have some tiny white roses still blooming in the arbor right outside my back door and pink ones next to the garage. What a beautiful site on these gray fall days. We also have holly growing near our garage and the red berries look great poking up thru the snow in Dec, Jan, Feb - or whenever we get a little.

Great pictures Sue and Joyce..great colour.

By Ken ja Mimi from da UP on Wednesday, November 17, 2004 - 11:52 pm:

Nice bright colors, 'eh? We have some petunias and poppy anemones still very colorful here in Cornell. 'Course they're in three pots that are moved into the garage during the cold. Was 54 deg. here this aft. Really t'ick fog in Escanaba and back out to Cornell earlier tonight. Hei hei, gotta go check What's UP.

By julie b., MI on Thursday, November 18, 2004 - 04:52 am:

I have a little planter which looks just like the little boots in the picture. Looks like those are a planter too, but maybe its just the angle of the shot.
