What's Blooming: November

It's been unseasonably warm the past few weeks and the fall foliage is loving it. Everything is in peak color right now. Here are some of the great looking trees in the neighborhood:

As for my pots and containers - not much is blooming anymore, save for a few hardy mums. But the foliage on the hostas and the ferns still look attractive:

And this poor container - it was planed with lovely fall colored pansies. But the silly squirrels keep digging in the soil thinking they have buried some food treasure. I had been dutiful about putting down "squirrel-be-gone" repellent, but at this point, I've given up trying to keep them away. Ah well!


  1. Hi Kate, You have some beautiful fall color. Our trees are just now beginning to change. And I sympathize with you about the squirrels. I am having my own problems with the little critters eating the tree fruit before it even ripens!

  2. Fantastic photos. The color is amazing and lovely blooms.

  3. Have to love, love Maples this time of year! Love all trees. Beautiful shots. My dog chases squirrels. But I always say, if you can't beat them, join them. Maybe put out a squirrel feeder - a better offer?

  4. AMAZING fall color...that 2nd tree is practically ABLAZE with glorious!

  5. Thanks for the post mate you have written it very well.
