November Garden

It is hard to believe that it is November! Didn't we just start the new year?!? It's even harder to believe when walking through our yard. Here a sampling of what is still happening in our garden:
Mexican Petunia

Confederate Rose, day 2 (on the first day they bloom bright white)



Forgot the name...




Gerbera Daisy

One lone small hydrangea flower
I hope your November is off to a good start!

And to all of you who were affected by the recent snow storm, I hope that your power is back on and your lives are returning to normal.


  1. Beautiful photos! When the castor bean seed pod is dry will it turn dark brown and does it pop open? i don't think I've seen one before.

  2. Your garden must look really pretty! We only have a couple of blooms left but I'm sure the frost will come along very soon and sort those out! We;ve had such mild weather here in the UK, it's difficult to imagine it's November already!

    Happy November!

  4. Wow such colour and beauty! I'm afraid our garden is looking a little dull brown and washed out these days!

  5. Liebe Silke,

    wir haben soeben gemeinsam deine
    Blumenpracht bewundert.

    Liebe Grüße
    Angela und Elisabeth

  6. My Dad has a Confederate Rose. Amazing how they go from white to pink! Great photos.

  7. Interesting to see what's blooming on your side of the world, Silke! I just prepared a post with a similar theme - I too have Oleander blooming!

  8. Une publication qui fleurit ma journée... Merci pour l'ensemble de ces belles photos.
    Gros bisous

  9. Great shots Silke!! I love the blue color of the plumbago!! Would love to paint with that color!! We faired ok in the storm, it took 3 days to get back online and I didnt realize how much I missed blogging!



  10. Never heard of the Confederate Rose, but it surely sounds and looks beautiful!
    Our November here was off to a sunny and mild start, too, but a look at the colourful leaves everywhere makes it quite obvious that summer has well and truly gone, as do the cold nights and early dark evenings.

  11. Wow, you have so many flowers left in your garden. I especially love that Confederate Rose, mostly because it's looking a little shabby around the edges. Love the contrast. The only color here comes from fallen leaves. Just a few traces of snow left around my yard.

  12. Beautiful captures of your garden....
    we are bracing for winter here in good old Deutschland...I am sure you can remember that:)

  13. Beautiful Silke. Love the Confederate Rose.

  14. You have so much color left in your Nov. garden, mine is just brown and more brown. Enjoy.

  15. i hope your feeling better dear silke and the cold hasn't gotten the better of you. your garden is so pretty, love all the colorful flowers.
