The garden certainly looks like late autumn. Most of the trees and shrubs are showing their winter bones. Some hold onto a few solitary leaves. A select few have just come into color and provide small splashes of color in the landscape. After I finished hanging the Christmas lights, I grabbed my camera and took a lap around the garden to capture some of the remaining autumn beauty.
|Hydrangea quercifolia 'Snow Queen'|
|Itea virginica 'Little Henry'|
|Viburnum rhytidophylloides 'Allegheny'|
|Geranium cantabrigiense 'Biokovo'|
|Hydrangea macrophylla Endless Summer® 'Twist and Shout'|
|Prunus cerasus 'North Star'|
I was dumbfounded when I saw that one of my newly-planted Hellebores had flower buds on it.
|Helleborus 'Jacob Classic'|
I hope that more seasonal temperatures return quickly so that the garden can continue its march towards dormancy. I look forward to spring as much as the next gardener, but spring in November seems confusing all around.
