Lots of November Blooms for GBBD!

We have enjoyed mild temps after the early October cold snap. Lots of flowers have either continued to bloom or have new blooms. Cold weather is imminent, so I wanted to do it up, and include most of what was blooming Friday. In order to do that, I made some collages.

Thank you Carol, of May Dreams Gardens for continuing to host this monthly event.

  7. OMGosh Sue! Look at those sweet peas!!In November!! The other flowers are impressive enough but to have a spring-bloomer still going at it, is pretty darn amazing. I will not tear mine out next year but keep them watered and fed. Hopefully I can have blooms until fall like you, dear friend.

  8. Wow! Lucky you! So many pretty flowers still hard at it. I'm down to one outdoor bloomer but I was thrilled to see it. Love the collage approach. Very clever.

  9. I really like the collages you put together and I appreciate the extra work that must have been. It made for a very pretty post. My favorite photo was of the two petal sunflower or susan. Couldn't tell what it was but it sure had a lot of personality!

  14. The collages are a nice way to share all the beauty you still have left in your gardens. I must be the only blogger left not doing collages. My computer really is on it's last legs and I'm barely able to upload photos.

  15. Honestly, I did not expect to see so much blooming in Nebraska at this time of year. Thanks for stopping by my blog and happy GBBD!

  16. It amazes me that we are both in Zone 5 and there is lots more color and bloom in your garden. Goes to show you that those zones can be deceptive!

  18. I recognized a borage flower! In my climate it would be strange to see them in the fall. I like the flowers but find the plant to be sort of floppy and unattractive.

    Both our gardens seem to be having "mild" temperatures. For you that means it's pleasantly warm and for us that it is pleasantly cool. What a lovely GBBD!

  19. Hi Sue,
    You have done a wonderful job putting together your bloom day collages. I like the variety of blooms you have going on here! I hope your throat is feeling better. Gargle with warm salt water, it really helps!

  20. That's a great showing for November. I can't believe some of the plants that are still in bloom for you. Your Christmas cactus is lovely, btw.

  21. You have soooo much still blooming in Nebraska! Sometimes those last few blooms just won't give in...they want to defy the odds and hope that it'll be spring again! hehe...just like me. We have had weather that is quite fair, though, so I'm not complaining. We should all be as 'optimistic' as those sweet flowers, and press on no matter what odds are against us;-)
