An Early November Walk in the Garden

We are closing in on our statistical first frost date for this area, but there is no frost in the ten day forecast. I am grateful and taking advantage of that to take A Walk in the Garden and share what is still providing some color for our fall enjoyment.

Let me invite you to walk through this short slideshow with me.

You might guess that I like pink.

    LOVE LOVE LOVE the Blushing Bride Hydgrangea. She is gorgeous, as is the rest of the pink ladies of your garden. Hard to believe the azaleas are still blooming, thus the name Encore?

    I hope you are reprieved from the frost for a while longer John. The Azaleas are very special, it’s lovely to see them growing as well as in your vases.

    Lovely – all that colour must cheer you through the shorter days. Love the Muhly grass. Hope your frosts stay at bay for a while. We had our first very light one last night.

  9. I had no idea there were fall-blooming Azaleas. That clump of Muhly grass is most impressive!

    We had our first frost and overnight everything changed. Leaves are dropping and dahlias are turning brown. The end of the season but the start of a new gardening year.

  11. Beautiful color! It’s been nearly a month since our average first frost date, which is October 15th. It hasn’t even dropped into the 30s yet.
