Rebecca Cullen is sharing shots of her New Jersey garden today, where a surprising number of plants kept blooming well into November.
I wanted to share some garden pictures taken in November from the Garden State. This is completely crazy, having so many things still flowering!
I caught the sun hitting the grass (Miscanthus sinensis, Zones 5–9) at the perfect moment.
This Japanese maple (Acer palmatum, Zones 5–9) was a Mother’s Day gift from my boys when it was small enough to plant myself. This is the morning sun, with fog shining on the turning leaves.
The hanging basket of pansies (Viola × wittrockiana, cool season annual) caught the falling leaves from the Japanese maple.
Last bloom from a Shasta daisy (Leucanthemum × superbum, Zones 5–9).
Final bloom of the season from a miniature sunflower (Helianthus annuus, annual) planted by the birds.
My deer family includes a mother with a limp who continues to stay with her babies.
I’ve been gardening a long time and am still astounded that this lilac (Syringa sp., Zones 3–8) is blooming in fall.
Cute little mushrooms are as colorful as any flower.
