Foggy Morn and GBBD November 2011

I woke up this morning to a heavy cotton candy sort of fog.

But then the sun came out and melted away the fog and it actually felt warm. I wrangled my way out of work early so I could sweep the billions of maple tree whirlybird seeds off my porch and into the compost (where they will undoubtedly sprout) and washed the outside windows and doors.

Cross those chores off my list!

I also took a few photos for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day, held on the 15th of each month by Carol of May Dream Gardens. There isn’t much blooming outside, but I do have some interesting looking

Seeds,

and a single Mum.

Luckily, I have my Christmas Cactus to save the day! They always bloom early, either on or just after Halloween.

      I walk by them every morning, but never really noticed them until I saw them in the fog. I think they look a little like cypress trees.

    Beautiful colors! My Christmas cactus is a light pink.
