Still no hard frost here, which is bizarre. Last night was the first close call, but my cosmos, snapdragons and nicotiana are still producing buds. I now have a 7-foot cosmos blooming in the middle of my peach tree, which makes it look like the peach tree is blooming. My mums are doing great, and I still have some Russian sage and black-eyed susans in bloom.
Today was a clean-up day: I sucked up two bags of leaves (mostly oak) in my electric leaf blower and composted them, one straight into the bin, the other I turned over into my raised bed to let it break down over time. I also pulled all the leaves of my irises and day-lilies, and cut down my asters and (dis-)obedient plants, which I should have done sooner since they've gone to seed.
