Pre Freeze Blooms

Well, 34 is forecasted this week, which means it's just enough to do damage, or close enough that it might get to 32 or cooler here at city's edge. I've rolled up the hoses. Put the gloves away. Cried. A little. Late at night. Thinking how to help my Japanese maple survive the winter wind
on the east side of my house....

What was all that?
1) Fall allium 'Ozawa'
2) Hot Lips turtlehead
3) Sure you've never seen crocus, but it bloomed just a week after planting
4) Evidence of too much rain (8" over for the year)
5) Annuals I forget the name of, but that bloom till freeze.
