After the lovely warm, sunny weather we’ve been having, it finally decided that it was November after all and got decidedly nippy today. I got the homemade heated bird bath set up and plugged in so the water wouldn’t freeze up and looked around for something to shoot for Garden Bloggers Bloom day tomorrow. Carol from Maydreams Gardens hosts this event each month and because of my work schedule this last summer and fall, I’ve put off posting. Now that work has lightened up a bit, it’s time to put in my 2 cents worth.
But not too much is going on and I need my gloves cause it is cold!
The leaves have fallen from my Euonymus bush leaving only the bright red berries. The chickadees are making short work of them and I suspect that even those will disappear within the next month.
The ornamental pear is the last of the trees to shed its leaves. They seem to glow in the late afternoon sun.
One more look at my favorite grass, the Northern Sea Oats.
Inside the house, it’s a different story. We are bursting with the grandest floral display.
All my Christmas Cacti decided to get a jump on the holidays and, like the stores, began showing off their colors right after Halloween.
Of course, with all this color now, I’m going to be in for a drab January.
