Blooms in November



Still have some blooms since we haven't had any frost yet.
Just picked...Cleome,Pineapple Sage and Geranium x 'Rozanne'.

  7. That bouquet looks like something I'd have in the middle of the summer, not November. So pretty. Great hawk picture.

  8. Lovely way to use the flowers before the frost takes them all! That's quite a hawk! Our locals hawks were riding the sky with the windy day today. One came in quite close to us and keeps the rabbits away!

  9. Your bouquet is gorgeous! I'd love to try the Pineapple Sage. There are so many interesting Salvias.
    Isn't it amazing how the birds just disappear when a hawk is around? Or the way they freeze if one flies overhead or perches somewhere nearby. We see quite a few redtails around here too. Their nests are huge!
    You were lucky to have him sit still for such a good picture.

  12. Patsi, I love the fantastic color combination in your vase! How brilliant cleome looks against the sage and geranium. Great shot of the hawk...Is he scouting the bird feeders! gail

  13. Lovely floral arrangement.

    We have a resident rad tail here. He is always checking out the bird feeders hoping to pick up a plump dove.

  14. Patsi, Just spent a little time catching up on your blog - I've been out of cyber space for a while due to a crashed hard drive. Your photographs are stunning, as always. We have red tails ... they don't bother the bird feeders but spend time circling the fields looking for rodents. It is fun watching the smaller birds chase them away when they get too close to their nests. Have a great weekend. Pamela

  15. Hi Patsi, Wow! That bouquet is absolutely gorgeous. I always forget you're in New Jersey. We do NOT have anything like that blooming here (at least, not in my garden). Red-tailed hawks are very prevalent here. I really like seeing them out and about. :-) Have a great weekend!

  17. Thanks everyone.
    Didn't realize so many of you get red-tailed hawks. They do say they're the most common...would hate to see them catch anything.

  18. What an incredible-looking bouquet! The colors are so fabulous and bright and vibrant and just look dang good together! How great that you still have some blooms. I am just emerging from the dead since we've had so much sickness, including the swine flu, in our home. Now I'm playing catchup! I'll be back soon.
