Fall is not over yet!

Despite the recent band of cold temperatures and even a snow threat (rare for November), there is still some beautiful foliage in the garden and the sasanqua camellias have been blooming nicely. This is Alabama Snow Wreath  (Neviusia alabamensis), a native shrub along the north fence next to the street. The leaves have been spectacular this autumn.

  2. I still a few blooms but, I don't think they can last much longer. Love the Snow Wreath.

  3. Isn't it amazing how the last yellow leaves look like beacons in the late fall sunshine.

  4. Fall is not over yet in the PNW either as the leaves on the Sweet Gum still cling to most of the branches, but this morning's hard frost may help it along. Happy Fall and winter, Phillip

  8. Not familiar with the Alabama Snow Wreath but it looks great. You are lucky to have any foliage left. Our landscape is bare and dreary.

  9. My gardening bug is really starting to kick back in now. I think next year is going to be a much better year. BTW I got your email about catching you up. I promise I'll get around to that sooner or later. :-)
