I think these flowers have an unfortunate name in English. It makes you think of the word "nasty" — which the flowers are not. In French, they're called capucines, which suits them better.
Our weather seems to be back on schedule. It started raining yesterday, November 1, which is La Toussaint in France. The rains always seem to start at the beginning of November. It's not cold though — 15ºC this morning, nearly 60ºF, but windy and wet.
These capucine plants grow in one of our vegetable garden plots. They seem to like our chalky soil, and they reseed themselves every year. They would really take over if we didn't pull them out regularly. I took these pictures on October 30; I can't remember if it had rained or if we just had a heavy dew.
The months go flying by. Les jours se suivent et se ressemblent, sauf le temps qu'il fait. Mais plus ça change, plus c'est la même chose.
