Strange November

     Here in Buffalo, NY the leaves are still mostly on the trees. Things are blooming that did not all summer. Summer was a drought. No matter how much I watered, some plants did not flower much. Now that is November, when usually the frost has killed everything, there are some terrific flowers.

This is more flowers than this hydrangea had all summer
Endless Summer never got a bloom like this all summer

These red snapdragons are absolutely velvety and lush!

Autumn crocus more timely

The ginko got planted and you can see the size next to Miss J

Yes, weird weather, as I'm eating fresh raspberries off my bush, in November.

It is so nice to have the late color. Maybe that will make winter feel shorter this time.

Hi Linda
My computer has been in the shop for a while now so I'm just now visiting your posts that I've missed. I'm NOWHERE near a quilter as experienced and productive as you, but I am a very experienced farmer/gardener. The Ginkgo is a very beautiful tree ....BUT watch out for the prolific seeds in the fall. Make sure you pick up the thousands a tree produces ...BECAUSE they STINK!!!! They smell like vomit OVERPOWERING vomit. Some home owners have decided to dig them up after a year or two of dealing with the seeds.

As ever your quilting projects are always inspiring and educational.
