i think it is so exciting that you have changing seasons - and the ways everything has to change to accommodate the seasonal changes.
I still have a rosemary plant blossoming in a planter on the deck here in RI!...an extraordinarily warm autumn...
It is amazing. I have some still blooming here too. I can remember one December when the Pincushion flower was still blooming. Begonias are one of my favorites.
Yes, my roses are still in bloom. We have had the 3d warmest November on record and it has been completely frost free, which is unheard of.xo
Stevie,Yes. You are so right. Its very unusual for flowers to still be blooming outside. I must dig up my calalilies and plant some deep dark purple tulips today. I must bring some of my geraniums in.The Bach
We have had a warm fall. By warm I mean 45-55 degrees. I took advantage of the weather to clean the yard of all things summer. I usually wait until it is snowing out before I get that sad job completed. The cranberry/pistachio bark is easy. I buy white chocolate candy melts, I like AC Morre candy for some reason. A bag of dried cranberries and of course pistachios. Melt the candies. Pour candy onto a parchment lined flat surface about 1/4-1/2" thick.Sprinkle cranberries and pistachios on top.I press them down a bit to make sure they are not just sitting on top of the candy. Drizzle more candy on top. Christmas colored sprinkles can be poured on top of that. White sprinkles are pretty too. What is nice about this, is you can make any size you want. Try melting a small amount of candy, just enough to make a saucer size sample. It is very sweet and should be kept out of sight! It disappears very quickly! denise
You are so lucky. My window boxes are in a sorry state after our wettest November on record coupled with gale force winds and today we are down to 3 degrees C. And they call this "global warming"!
my geranium is hanging on too. crazy - and today i found flowering plum trees in bloom.
It's been a great November. There was a similar one about 7 or 8 years ago.. right into December. That following January and February had some incredibly mild days sprinkled throughout too.. so I'm hopeful. :)
Wow, I'm looking at the beautiful reflection in the window. My yard is pretty sad, I don't have an emerald thumb.
It looks like your summer is going on and on this year Steviewren, just as our southern hemisphere winter is. Enjoy! - Dave
That color of pink is beautiful against the weathered wood. Your blog is beautiful, too. I love your header. Really elegant.
I'm glad you stopped by and I look forward to your comments. As Dr. Fraser Crane would say, "Hello, I'm listening."
