my november garden

october garden

For awhile there, my garden was a downright riot of color: the zinnias were blooming well into their tenth week, the buddleia weren’t showing any signs of stopping, and the enormous came-with-the-house chrysanthemums had exploded into bright shades of yellow and pink. Heck, even the coleus that I planted from seed were cropping up everywhere in brilliant bursts of maroon. Life was good.

The early snow made for some awesome photographs, but it didn’t do any favors for the flowers. Looking at that sight this weekend made my heart sink — all that effort for this unceremonious death?!

Thankfully the herbs and sedum are doing just fine, but I have SO MUCH WORK to do this weekend to get the garden back in shape. Maybe it’s time to plant all my spring bulbs? Anyone have tips on bulb planting?
