Post Bloom Day

November 16, 2009

Someone nudged me that I missed Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, but it was for a good cause: gardening in a tank top in mid-November in central NY! I’m still not done doing stuff that should be done (not telling you what still waits to get into the ever-cooling ground), but it was progress. Here are some images from under today’s partly-sun. Let’s focus on the color and save most of the winter interest for winter.

Anemone sylvestris winking out

Aster novae-angliae i think

passalong Korean mum, name unknown, but i like it

passalong lamium, probably in too much sun

passalong Stipa from Kris

Panicum virginicum

sedums as always

Buddy is also autumn colored

Hope you’re enjoying the colors wherever you are!

    See. November can be a trip. Now if you can just hang in for the next three months. Really like the last one of Buddy.

    That last Buddy shot is hilarious! And I totally LOVE the one of the stipa. I forgot all about bloom day – I’ll take this as a nudge (if I follow through as you did, it’ll be a passalong post). Enjoy that tanktop weather while it lasts!

    Buddy is my favorite shot, particularly with is stick. He and our Penny would make good book ends.

    Thanks for the encouragement, Craig, and the enthusiasm from everyone. It’s no surprise that this is turning into a dog blog. The Pooker is irresistable!

    lynn, nice focus on the colors in your november garden – of both flora and fauna! and you’re so right – no need to call out winter interest when it isn’t even here… yet…! in the meantime, here’s to passalongs – plants and posts… :)
