The raised bed and bird bath in my back garden.

Lots of foliage at this time of year …

… clematis, heucheras, aubrieta, heathers, hollies.

NOVEMBER

N is an abandoned nest.
Built by beaks ~ it was their best …

O was sent by Bjs,
Omphalodes ~ a great success …

V for variegated trees …
Happy holly ~ keen to please …

E the evergreens abound …
Sure to dazzle any hound …

M ~ the mosses hold on tight …
Whether boots fit left or right …

B ~ from Hywel ~ bells so bright …
Cute campanulas delight …

E ~ Euonymus of gold …
Leaves like jewels, brave and bold …

R ~ my roses gleam with dew.
Crisp November ~ sparkling through …

Autumn’s here. There’s much to do.
Breezes blow the leaves that grew.

Days are shorter. Yes that’s true.
Mud on shoes, it clings like glue.

Gardens chill with déjà vu.
Fleeting sunshine ~ skies of blue.

Orange sunsets ~ pink clouds too.
Cool November, we love you.

Great stuff TT and Conker of course, love his shades!! Think you should plant your old 'boot' up with a plant TT. It would look good in the garden.

11 Nov, 2012

 

Thanks Lizzie and Grandmage ..
I discovered the old boots in my garden some years back. I've been using them as door-stops for my sheds. Lol.

Inspiring verse and lovely photos.

Do the words come easily to you when you write your poems or do you have to spend a lot of time 'pondering?'

11 Nov, 2012

 

Hello Wildrose
... Thanks for your kind comments ..

Interesting question ...
sometimes words come easily, but
I prefer to choose my words carefully ...
So .. yes.. I like to 'ponder' ... :o)

Great blog Terra with some lovely photo`s of your garden, that is a smashing rose, is that flowering at the moment??? I like the sky pic as well, not seen many like that lately...
Of course Conker has to be my fav, made me think of my old music teacher, always had the specs on and then peered over the top, lol....

11 Nov, 2012

 

Thanks Sue.
I took all the photos this weekend.
The rose is the one I inherited from my mother. It has grown surprisingly high and it flowers profusely for months on end.
Sunny day today, so Conker was glad of his specs ;o)

Thanks Hywel ..
Your mother's campanula is growing well.
Flowers all over it right now :o)))

11 Nov, 2012

 

That's good. I'm pleased it's doing so well :o)
My father's auntie Martha Ann brought a small bit one day, and stuck it in the wall. It took off, and spread between all the stones in the old wall. It looked very pretty when it was full of flowers :o)

11 Nov, 2012

 

I'm going to split the campanula in the springtime ...
Martha Ann would have been pleased with how well it is flowering :o)

11 Nov, 2012

 

Yes I think she would :o)

A very inspiring blog TT it definitely lifted my spirits. Its great to see that a garden can have so much colour and interest even in these sometimes gloomy months.

13 Nov, 2012

 

Brilliant Blog, love it. I dont love November the days are so dark, and I dont get to see my garden during the week, as its dark when I get back from work, so my pleasure is looking at the blogs and this has surely pleased

13 Nov, 2012

 

Hi Cannahave1 ..
Those are very lovely comments.
Thank you !
That's a pity you don't see your garden in daylight on weekdays.

I have personal reasons for finding the end of October/beginning of November a sad time, but once we reach about 10th, I feel able to look for happy, wonderful things about this time of year.

Enjoy your weekends in the garden. :o)

13 Nov, 2012

 

Pretty photos and a lovely poem TT. The Rose is beautiful, do you have a name for it? Hello Conker \o/ :o))))xx

15 Nov, 2012

 

Hi Annie ..
Thanks. The rose was very small when inherited from my mother. She had described it as her 'miniature rose' and I thought she meant the whole rose plant would be tiny. So I was very surprised when it grew and grew.. taller and taller !

It is still covered in pretty blossoms and buds.
Sadly, no i.d. as yet.

Dull weather today, so Conker didn't need his shades ;o)
