November Ends on a Dreary Day.

Category: Gardening Remembrances | Posted: Mon Nov 30, 2009 11:11 pm

November is ending on a cold, rainy, misty day. My garden has lost most of its luster; I can once again see my fountain as the Elephant Ears, that had completely surrounded it, are drooping and have begun their inevitable surrender to the seasonal change. My knockouts are holding out and are still red and bright and will continue to do so for a few more weeks. All will return in March and April but right now it is a little dreary just like the day.

However, I did find one new bloom on my climbing rose bush that is growing on my new gazebo. By next June the gazebo should be completely covered in blooming roses. So much to look forward to but I still take pause to see what it is today and what it was this summer.

Tomorrow ushers in the final month of the year and consequently the Winter Season too. The following month brings us a new year and soon a new growing season. Our winters here are nothing close to what I remember in Ohio and New Jersey but that said it still is not a very good growing time either.
It is time to finish the work needed to welcome in the Spring. I still have a number of plants to move,a whole lot of Bermuda grass to remove from my daylily beds and about 80 bags of cypress mulch to put down. While flowers may get a rest from growing, gardeners do not.

We're shivering here in Scotland with temperatures of -4C at the moment. The only thing in flower is my mahonia. However, I already see the first signs of things to come as my daffodil bulbs are beginning to sprout.

It may not be the best weather outside but the garden needs this spell of dormancy so that it can rest in preparation for spring when it will burst forth again in all its glory.

I had many plants that I moved this fall. And the weather co operated enough that I was able to get done everything and a bit more then I had to. we now are in snow weather as of tonight (11-30)
Hope you can finish your yard work so you'll be able to see all your colors in the summer.
