Will my garden be blooming on November 15. the official Garden Bloggers Bloom Day? Maybe not. Therefore, I went around the garden today taking photos of the flowers blooming this very unusually warm November day. We have yet to have a hard frost although some plants were bitten and succumbed. This is what’s left on this gloomy day with a temperature of 50 degrees at 4 in the afternoon

Daylight savings left, Eastern Standard time arrived and so did the 5 o’clock dark. But winter is not here yet so I celebrate this bloom day.

    Your garden looks plum floriferous for this time of year.

    Lisa – It is cold this morning, but still not frosty. What an amazing fall.

    Thank you for the reminder that we do have flowers around for many months of the year.

    I’m happy you were able to enjoy these blooms for so long! We were hit by a frost before you–I think a week before Bloom Day my blooms gave up for the season.
