The roadside garden is still going strong this November. The Muhly grass has finally begun its show with the pink plumes and the Robinson red mums added a much needed spot of red color to the yellows, oranges, purples and white .
These zinnias performed beautifully through the summer drought and flood and are still showing off their beautiful orange blooms.
Lavender 'provence ' also took the drought well and bloomed several times. THe lovely light purple asters are late bloomers in the Fall garden.
Painted a dead tree turquoise and installed it by my new birdhouse.
Delighted to see Rodgersia , aka, Rodger's Flower is thriving and sent up a stalk with a bud as if it couldn't wait to bloom.
Added Lorepetalum, a brilliant purple leafed evergreen, an Asian pear '20th century ', oakleaf hydrangeas, Southern wax myrtle, two blueberries, anemones, ferns, hostas, kerria japonica and bear's britches to the back garden. Added some sage and bay leaf to the herb garden and kale in the vegetable garden.
It's too warm now but I am thinking of adding more bulbs such as tulips, alliums and daffodils . Meanwhile I am just going to relax and enjoy this mild November weather that we've been blessed with.
