Some imagery from today in my backyard:


I have always had plenty of good fall yellows, but I am happy to be nurturing along some more reds:


This Hosta ‘Stained Glass’ looks pretty good for Nov. 6.


Autumn fern, Sarcococca, Sedum ‘Autumn Joy’, fish


Judd Viburnum


our shed and bee area:


Some yellows…American hazelnut, Bottlebrush buckeye, and spicebush


Fall color fail. This redbud, which I got at a native plant nursery a few years ago, has been a disappointment.  It had one flower last spring, and so far the fall color has been non-existent.


Some fading pennisetum, aster, chyrsanthemum in our old wheelbarrow:

P_20181106_160425My lone Colchicum autumnale ‘Pleniflorum’…I ordered and planted 5 from Brent & Becky’s but only this one bloomed.  Awwww…


My fall vegetable gardening attempts.  Carrots: 1/10


Broccoli: It’s not going to happen.


I can always count on my Super Sugar snap peas:


75 ‘Marit’ tulip bulbs from Brent & Becky’s

  1. The idea of growing plants in wheelbarrow is amazing! Have you painted it on your own? I know what I have to do next spring to make my garden look more glamorous..Thank you there! Moving on to your plants – they are so pretty. Since few years I like to experiment a bit with late varieties of vegetables. This autumn I was also cultivating carrots and califlowers but the first plant was a… bingo. Carrots from even they were sprouting a bit long they turned out to be so tasty that my family feasted on everything!
