I'm relatively sure this is a Hibiscus. But it could be a watermelon. I probably won't know for sure until I eat it.
I've pretty much made up my mind that I'm going to try and stay here in Denver until Thanksgiving. I say "try" because it depends on the weather.
Sometimes November can be pretty nice, and other times it can act like winter. And acting like winter is what worries me the most. I can plugin, so I won't have to totally depend on my solar panels like I'm doing now, because keeping snow off the solar panels is one of my significant concerns.
But my biggest concern is keeping my pipes from freezing. As most of you know, an RVs furnace is designed to heat up the living area and heat the basement where a lot of your pipes are and the area under the trailer where you're holding tanks live, so pipes don't freeze and break. You also know that the RVs furnace is exceptionally loud when running, sucks up propane like it's free, and vents almost as much heat outside as it does in. It's annoying and expensive to run, but if you don't and a pipe breaks, things can get even more annoying and costly.
On average, winters I solve this problem by going places where it usually doesn't freeze at night, or at least freeze hard enough and long enough to break pipes. But staying in Denver that late in the season can be risky, and the only way I know to solve the problem is to be plugged in, run the furnace, and just get used to the noise and filling up the propane tanks every week. Although I actually don't know how much propane the furnace uses because I seldom use it since I heat the Arctic Fox with a radiant heater.
But I would like to spend Thanksgiving with the family and at the same time give the country a few more weeks to get back to a semblance of normalcy before I head South to who knows where.
The yellow Rose of Denver. I think there's a song about it but they got the name wrong.... By the way, don't take my word that this is a Rose, and I'm not 100% certain its yellow.
I don't know what the heck this is, but it's growing in a flower bed so it must be a flower.
