Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day- November 2013

I didn’t think that I’d have a November GBBD post to share but I just can’t quite give up yet.

We still have a few blooms to enjoy here on the coast of New England.

IMG_4372Still a few knock out roses, the rest of the roses are gone. I’m really in love with this color that I chose for the front and side yards. We planted several of these recently. You’ll see more of them in the spring.

IMG_4364Some snapdragons too…with the right kind of winter I may be able to post a photo of these in the February and March GBBD posts (just kidding, probably).. 

IMG_4359Not quite a bloom, but the asparagus foliage and seeds almost qualify. I love these!

IMG_4329And just enough foxglove to make sure that we don’t forget about it.

That’s it for me!  Looking forward to looking at the other Bloom Day posts at May Dreams Gardens!

Hope you do too!


ps/ It’s the weekend! Be sure to take a few minutes to check out the video that I shared here the other day of Margaret Roach‘s gardens in New York State. It’s great!



  1. Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day??? Something official? or a specific day of the week? Tell me more please 🙂 Dana


    1. On the fifteenth of each month/ Go to May Dreams Gardens (hover over it and you’ll see that it’s a link when I mention it at the end of my post) and add your blog post and comment on hers as the host. It’s fun to visit everyone’s posts and it brings in lots of great gardeners to your blog! It also kind of gives me some structure and lots of good ideas… You should participate, people would enjoy seeing what you’ve got blooming there in Ireland!!


      1. That might help get me more organized… I’ll have to give it a try! thank you.

    There’s a Salem, Oregon near me, I didn’t know which one to expect. I don’t have a lot of flowers left either, but a few. It’s nice your rose is still hanging on. Your GBBD link goes to your September post. I just took off the end to get to the latest post. I copied the wrong link in mine as well so had to re-link but now they are both there.


    1. Thanks for letting me know Hannah, I’ll fix it, and thanks for stopping by and saying hi!

    I watched the clip. It was fun. What an amazing place Margaret has! Her choice of color for leaves was a keeper for me. I was developing an inferiority complex until she said she’d been at it for years! Thanks for sharing.


    1. So glad you enjoyed it Sally. I enjoyed the gold leaf color idea too… I may try to add some here, or at least be a little more focused as I choose colors. It all takes time!
