Garden Bloggers Bloom Day -November 2009

I must say that the blooms in my garden aren't hardly worthy of photos.  I will put up a few to let you know I am still around and kicking.  This fall has been so busy for me.  I feel like all is under control as best it could be.  First up is the little bud on the carpet rose.  This plant has the worst conditions to grow in and it usually is the last to give up for the year.

This Purple Cone Flower is still trying to set some blooms. It is growing in too much shade so since the leaves are off the trees it is telling me it would appreciate some more sunshine.

This white anemone is still sporting a few blooms despite the frosty nights.  She is a real trooper.

Several of the tall Garden phloxes have a few little blooms.  They are enjoying this mild fall too.

The Persicari 'Red Dragon' is still blooming.

Other than the left over hydrangea blooms, a malva and a few shrivled mums the rest of the blooms in the garden come from annuals such as this Lantana which looks faded out. 

We are having our first rain in November today.  What is left in the garden seems to be perking up a bit. I hope you all are having a perky week too. For more Garden Bloggers Bloom Days please go to Carol's May Dreams Garden.

  1. Lisa, this is quite a lot in bloom for Indiana in mid-November - anemone, rose bud and phlox?
    Glad you have some pretty things still flowering. Now off to look up Persicari ;-]

    Happy GBBD,

  3. Dear Lisa, you have things blooming in your northern garden that have long given up here in the south. It must be quite mild indeed. The anemone stirs pangs of jealousy!

  5. I envy you, you have more color in your garden than I do. We have had a mild November but here almost nothing is blooming.

  6. I love your anemone and the light colored lantana. I want to get some more anemones next year. My pink September Charm looks to be finished. Does deadheading extend the blooming!

  10. You sure have a lot more things blooming than we do here in Cincy. We are pretty much all brown now.
    Your flowers are still so pretty.
    Must be all this warm weather we're having.

  11. Lisa, very impressive late fall blooms. I love that anemone, too. We have had almost 3" of rain since Sunday, with more in the forecast for the rest of the week. Enough!
    Hope you and yours have a womderful Thanksgiving!

  12. Lisa, I think all of your blooms are definitely photo-worthy! Beckie told me you've been extremely busy at work lately; hope things settle down a bit for you soon. And I also hope you aren't getting as much rain as we are! I'm ready for sunny days again.

  13. A great job scouting up blooms in your garden for our viewing pleasure. We received our first November rain yesterday, but with all the rain that fell in October, I wasn't exactly worried about slipping into drought conditions.

  16. It's neat that your Coneflowers are still blooming and looking so good. Mine have been gone for a long time now.

  17. Hi Lisa.....great blooms for mid November. The phlox surprised me.....what a bonus...

    My coneflowers have all lost their seedheads....I think the birds have been having fun with them......

  18. It's interesting to see that someone else has tall phlox in bloom. I had one variety that never bloomed this summer and just started in October. You really have anice selection of items in bloom Lisa.

  19. Wow Lisa, all those blooms are pretty wonderful for November. Everything's all brown here in Minnesota.

  20. In mid November you had blooms that were long gone here, but my Malva survived well into the fall. Wish my beautiful Anemones had. I was so sad to see them go.
    I hope you had a wonderful Thanksgiving, Lisa! I'm thankful that we're blog friends too :)
