November 2016 | firstname.lastname@example.org
Surprisingly, this November has come in like a lamb. It’s hardly felt much like fall this year.
Truth be told, it’s been great to have the extra time to put the garden down for the winter. We’re going to have 70 degree weather for the first weekend in November. I’m still optimistic about power washing the deck before the snow flies…
Somehow I found time this week to take photos in the garden. I could hardly believe how good the potted annuals looked!
This is totally ridiculous! There’s so much green in the garden. Most of my photos were an ode to both summer and fall – the greens and the blooms side by side with the browns and yellows of fall.
Much of the garden seems to be protesting fall. There are plants that are still all out green and others that are blooming their hearts out.
Here’s the Astible bolted blooms in the Western Garden…
And check out the new hydrangea plants…
The succulents from Kelly & Kelly nursery will get brought indoors on Sunday.
The herbs are oblivious of the calendar.
Props to the Creeping Charlie and Buttercup. Those two thugs thumb their nose at the thermometer. I swear they are green under the snow.
There were a just a handful of plants in full Fall glory.
The cat statue under the arbor is almost buried in leaves.
I love the seed pods in the fall.
The hydrangea are browning on the trees.
I love the red leaves of this ornamental tree in the Tiered Garden.
Here I thought that I didn’t have a veggie to my name…
These always remind me of those stemware cleaning brushes.
I can’t remember what this was – but I love it now for sure!
This is the perfect fall mix of color.
Well, that’s the View From Up Here for November 2016.
