Blooms In My Cottage Garden On November 17th!!!!!!!!!!!!













Our last visit to the cottage, was unbelievable!!!

The 2 days we spent there, broke records for high temps in November...

There will still quite a few things blooming, and I wanted to share them with you..

We had lots of Perennial Mums, in Pink and a lovely red...and ltos of tiny visitors on them as well!!

There were lots of Perennial White Yarrow blooming...it just keeps on going!!!

I was very surprised to see the Pink Campion in bloom...they are usually sound asleep by this time of the year!!

Annual Geraniums and White Nicotianas still putting on a great show...

And the sweet little Campanula Bell Flower...just keeps blooming and blooming...such a hardy perennial...

The leaves also were still a splendid colour...have lots more pics to share...

Even my tiny tomatoes were still trying...♥️

 

Hope you are all well....

I know my American friends will be having a ball tomorrow....ENJOY!!!!! 

We are almost ready to leave and go get our flu shots for the year...

Not looking forward to a sore arm tomorrow....😧

        Enjoy your evening...

                  Cheers!  :o)

  2. Enjoy that weather. It is cold and rainy here.

    Flu shots. Not fun. More fun than the flu though.

    Your garden is beautiful. I'm a little jealous.

  3. Lovely blooms last week, wonder if you will see them this week after the temperatures dropped considerable. Not fun getting flue shots, perhaps that is why we don't get them. Lucky me, haven't been sick since I stopped working with kids :)

  8. Glad your warm season is lengthened and you are still blooming . . . :)
    Very nice shots, Linda.

    I had my first ever anti flu jab and an anti shingles jab on the same day, so I should be flu free for a while and protected that nasty shingles.

    Cheers, Eddie :)

  9. We've had an amazing fall, haven't we? It is currently snowing and blowing here. I have been meaning to get my flu shot. A close friend of mine is a pharmacist and she has given me my flu shot for the past couple of years. -Jenn

  10. How wonderful to continue to have bright flowers in your garden, even if a few bugs join in. It was 38c here today, also a November high record. What in the world is happening to our weather? Your purple flower is gorgeous, and I have no idea with it is :)

    1. Oh my...you are hot down there!!
      That is the Campanula Patricia...I have white and mauve...a very sturdy wee perennial...and it spreads like crazy! Unfortunately usually into the lawn!
      i gave my son a clump for his gardens...he loves it!
      Stay cool!!

  11. Wow! So many blooms for late November Linda. I saw some of my rose campions blooming recently too. I think everything is finished now though. I did have some geraniums in a window box, but the snow on the weekend finished the flowers off. As to your question, my dad is at Erin Mills Pkwy & 403. I guess that's fairly close to you? I'm terrible at driving in your city, and get lost ... a lot! One time trying to get back on the 403 I ended up in the "arrivals" at the airport!! I was not happy, but my family sure had a good laugh ;)

  12. Beautiful blooms! Nothing here....we have had a week of hard frosts overnight so everything has said goodbye for the year. I did bring in one small white geranium and put it in my new garden window and it has already started blooming! So I guess it approves of it's new spot for the winter! yay!

  13. You have lovely bright spots of flower power!
    A dear friend brought me a beautiful, bright pink cyclamen. Have to say it cheered me. And another friend chose a gorgeous pink and green silky robe for me and now I match the cyclamen! :-)

  14. Beautiful . . .
    Perked me up!
    Glorious November days here in the states.
    Although the rain arrived and can end soon . . . no doubt it is good to have
    rain late in the season to water the soil for springtime!
    Happy you enjoyed some lovely cottage days . . .

  16. Wow, I'm always so impressed that you know the names of all of the different flowers. Hope you had a fun sleepover with Miss V. I did my usual bi weekly trek to the grandkids yesterday. With food, of course. Have a great weekend and take care...
