Ups and downs

Is any one else having a crazy November… weatherwise? It’s been an absolute rollercoaster here – two days freezing, three days warm, three days freezing, one day warm… and today we are supposed to get an inch of snow.

I don’t know what to think any more. And neither do the gardens.

The catnip has started to bloom again.

My newest mum has pushed out one, small, bright bloom.

And I introduced you to my reblooming iris last year. It bloomed at the end of October last year. This year, it was freezing at that time, so I didn’t think I’d see any flowers on it. But this rollercoaster month has it very confused.

Irises in November! Who knew!

    Same weather pattern for me except for snow. We have had several hard frosts and it is surprising to see plants that have survived showing buds or blooms. I am trying to make the most of each of the warm days because I know they will be ending soon.


  2. YES! Our weather has been unpredictable too, to say the least. It hasn’t been warm, warm. Like warm enough to grow flowers, but in the 50’s which is very unusual and snow is predicted for tonight. Enjoy those beautiful blooms while you can.


  3. The temps here have been on a roller-coaster — but not enough to make the irises bloom!
    I’m really enjoying “sweater weather” — highs in the 40s. I took two walks with friends this weekend, and the air was so fresh and brisk. It won’t be this warm for long in Wisconsin!
