November Bloom Day Report, Part 1

November 15, 2010 · 11 comments

Y’all know about the Garden Blogger  Bloom Day, no doubt, so let’s get right to the photos.  As usual, I interpret “blooming” loosely to include seasonal foliage color.  So shoot me.

First up, the front porch made prettier by mums, annuals holding their own, the foliage of a Spirea, and in the foreground, Alyssum that blooms its guts out all season.

Then the view from the deck into the valley.

View from the Deck

In my woodland garden, everyone notices the birdhouses, but my favorite focal point is this oakleaf hydrangea – that the deer won’t eat!

Part 2 of my Bloom Day report is here on the Homestead blog.

I love your woodland! Since I planted all my trees, I’ll never get to experience it in its maturity, but it’s fun to admire the beautiful colors in yours!! L

The woodland is sublime!

I agree with you – the foilage is blooming in all its glory.

beautiful images, I love this time of year, as I put my garden to bed. Planting thousands of bulbs makes me excited for spring. Is there ever a bad time of year to be a gardener?!
