November Bloom Day already? Ah, October, we hardly knew ye. As the old song says, the days do get shorter when you reach September.
But October went by in such a hurry that nothing much has changed with the blooms in my garden. Basically, all the blooms I showed you last month are still there and I don't want to commit the sin of repeating myself. So, I looked around to see if I could find something - anything! - that I hadn't shown you before. In some cases, many times before.
It's well nigh impossible really, because most of my plants have been around for a long time and their blooms will be very familiar to you if you follow my posts here from month to month. Still, I was able to come up with a few which perhaps I have not overused.
|The white mistflower with its companion marigold. The white mist came into bloom this month and has been a real feast for all the butterflies that visit my garden.|
|Well, yes, I know I've shown you the 'Graham Thomas' rose before, here with its little green beetle on the left.Though I have featured it many times before, it really is at its best at this time of year so I have to include it.|
|And this is 'Litchfield Angel,' a David Austin rose like the 'Graham.' It has been putting on quite a show lately. Those blossoms are so heavy I had to hold one up in order to photograph it.|
|The jatropha got a late start this year but it is still going strong.|
|For weeks, I've been waiting for this Copper Canyon daisy to come into bloom and finally it is!|
|The shrimp plant, too, has pouted throughout the year after suffering from the cold last winter. I wondered if it would ever bloom. Well, I have my answer.|
So, there you have a sampling of what's in bloom in my Southeast Texas garden this November. To see what else is in bloom, you can always refer back to my October Bloom Day post!
Thank you for visiting my garden today and thank you as always to Carol of May Dreams Gardens for hosting this meme each month.
Happy Bloom Day!
