For much of the summer I felt like I'd lost interest in gardening. This summer was probably the least I've gotten done in years. I'm not sure if it was the weather or just a phase I was going through. But, I already feel that excitement that I usually have for gardening returning, and days like today really help allow me to make up for lost time.
Look what I found blooming today:
Salvia 'Golden Delicious' which is an annual here is finally blooming now that it's November.
Hardy fuchsias are still blooming very nicely. It's difficult to see in this picture, but the Water Hawthorn is blooming in the pond now.
My newish Hydrangea 'Limelight' still has several fresh flowers.
One of the new Daylilies which I didn't expect to see flowers from until next year has thrown up a bud.
Lewisia has a new flower.
Rose 'Kimberlina' has lots of buds, I wonder how many will get to bloom?
A Hollyhock in November is very unusual. I found this one when I was picking a couple of pears nearby.
Cosmos and Rose 'Lady Emma Hamilton' are blooming quite a bit even though the area they are in has gotten quite shady now.
Did anyone else notice how beautiful the moon was early this morning? I wish I would've tried to get a picture of it. It was followed by a beautiful gold sunrise. I wish every November day could be this nice!
