Welcome to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for November 2021.
Here in my USDA Hardiness Zone 6a garden in Central Indiana, the first snow of the season fell on the morning of November 14th.
Even with the snow, the last of the autumn crocuses, featured in my last post, are still pretty bits of color, leftover flowers from the late autumn.
Out in the front garden, the last of the Sorbet violas are still blooming.
I’m letting them fade out and go to seed. I’m hoping for their return in early spring as they are supposed to be perennials in my hardiness zone.
Nearby, I spied the last of Geranium ‘Rozanne’ blooms.
These have been blooming for months!
Inside, the Thanksgiving cactus has started to bloom, right on schedule.
It’s just getting started but should be in full bloom by the time we celebrate Thanksgiving on November 25th. Then it’s on to…
Hey, is that more snow?
Indeed it is. But by the time this post actually goes live, I expect most of the snow will be gone. Plus Tuesday’s high temperature is supposed to be in the low 60s (Fahrenheit). That will give me a chance to finish some garden clean up and put up some Christmas lights before the next wave of cold weather reminds us that winter is coming.
