The mums and pansies are the highlights in my garden for the November Garden Blogger Bloom Day hosted by Carol, from May Dreams Gardens .
There are a few surprise blooms here at Robin's Nesting Place. Like Carol, my garden is in zone 5, where we have already had some pretty cold temperatures and frost. It warmed up for a few days and the Verbena has started to bloom again.
I still have miniature roses blooming.
The lantana on two plants are still blooming. The other three lantana plants gave up after the first frost.
A few inside plants are blooming. The kalanchoe has just a few blooms left; I so glad they hung around for November GBBD.
The peace lily is also blooming.
The other surprise for November GBBD is that I still have purple wave petunias blooming and they still look pretty! This planter is on the patio up against the house, but still exposed to the elements, I can't believe the frost hasn't killed it.
I have pansies in an assortment of colors blooming in the front porch flower bed.
I brought five of the gerbera daisies inside so I could enjoy these gorgeous blooms longer. Three of them are blooming now, and another is just beginning to bud. They seem to be doing just as well inside as they were out.
I also brought in an African daisy and it has tiny buds on it. It hasn't bloomed in a couple of months so I'm surprised to see the buds. I was mainly curious to see if it would overwinter inside.
I still have salvia, and lavender in bloom too. I was concerned that I'd have nothing blooming this month, so I'm very glad that a few things hung in there so I could at least have a few blooms to share.
My parents called me yesterday and surprised me with the news that they were coming up from Alabama to visit TODAY. Since they are here I'll be a little more preoccupied than usual, so it may take me a few days to get around to see all of the GBBD posts. I look forward to seeing if others have surprise blooms for November.
