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

Santa Rosa Beach

Santa Rosa Beach, Florida 

We are home from our annual Florida vacation - this year we stayed in Santa Rosa Beach. The weather was rainy the first part of the week but then it cleared out and we had sunny skies for the remainder. We actually did not do that much - we spent more time in our beach house and just ventured out for food. After visiting for over 15 years, I think we have seen just about everything but we did visit a park that was new to us (photos coming later).
