Garden Blogger's Bloom Day - November 2021

  There's not a lot of blooms in the November garden but a few scattered here and there. We've not had a hard frost yet but a lot of rain and heavy winds. Some leaves remain on the trees but most are already stripped bare. Aster 'Monte Cassino' is really beautiful and the photo doesn't do it justice. This is out next to the street and I see people stopping to admire it.   Not blooms but berries - Callicarpa 'Profusion' (Beautyberry)   Fatsia   Fuchsia 'Hawkshead' still going strong   This is the most stunning fuchsia and of course I don't have the name. A neighbor gave it to us and the label read 'Landscape Fuchsia'.   Mahonia 'Charity' (Oregon Grape)   Pennisetum '24 Karat' (Fountain Grass) Schizostylis (Cape Lily), a gift from Sean Hogan     Hydrangea 'Nikko Blue'   Rose 'Playboy' Rose 'Lady of Shallot' Rose 'Lady Emma Hamilton' Rose 'Golden Celebration'  I will wrap this up wit

Prelude to winter

  1. A whole lot of this going on here. Does your green man have to come in out of the frost to stay intact?

  2. Lisa, I've never brought him in and he has been fine. I've had him for a long time.

  4. Hi Phillip, the garden is going to rest and I always feel a little sad. But there's always next year! Thanks for your lovely photographs.

  5. Both garden and gardener need to rest and rejuvenate so I'm not to sad to see winter rolls in. I love the bird bath: it looks like the water in it has frozen!
