Welcome to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day for November 2022.
Here in my USDA Hardiness Zone 6a garden in central Indiana, we’ve suddenly been plunged into winter. If someone came here from another planet, they would probably be quite confused because just a few days ago, it was almost summer-like.
But for those of us who’ve been here for a while, well…
How about that Christmas Rose, Helleborus niger blooming already?
This is probably one of the plants I bought several years ago at a local grocery store during the Christmas season, when we can sometimes find them in the floral department in full bloom. I kept it alive inside long enough to plant it out the following spring.
That lovely Christmas Rose and this lovely Thanksgiving/Christmas cactus blooming inside round out the true blooms for me on this bloom day.
But would you like to see what might have been if we hadn’t had snow on Saturday, cold on Sunday, and an even colder morning on Monday when I took pictures for this post.
Here they are…
And that’s my garden on Garden Blogger’s Bloom Day for November 2022. What’s blooming in your garden as we reach the middle of November? We’d love to see, so please join in! Post on your blog about what’s blooming in your garden, then leave a link and a comment here so we can go check it out. Don’t have a blog? Post on Instagram and show us there!
We can have flowers nearly every month of the year. – Elizabeth Lawrence
