Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - November, 2016

This may be my last post on my garden until next spring arrives.  I have nothing inside blooming anymore now that all of the orchids are gone.  Outside right now it is a beautiful fall day.

We still have some color:
 Burning Bush
Oak-leaf hydrangea
I still have all the leaves on this tree:
Kousa Dogwood
There are berries that birds haven't yet eaten:
Cranberry viburnum
There are beautiful grasses:




Unfortunately I had to cut down all the zebra grass since it was infected with powdery mildew.

And there are dead flower heads on hydrangeas:
Limelight
Quickfire
The super moon has come and gone:
Those are branches on the Rivers birch around the moon.

Visit other gardens at May Dreams Gardens and thanks to Carol for hosting this monthly event.

    1. Thank you. I love grasses and deer do not so that makes them even better.

  2. Lovely colours that you don't realise exist. Glad the deer don't like the grasses.

  4. Did you take that last picture? Wow! Actually I love all your pictures showcasing the fall colours. My hubby cut down all the hydrangia to the bottom. I told him not to do that because it will give more leaves but less flowers...he doesn't believe me since I don't have a green thumb.

    1. Yes, I took the last picture. I wish I still had my old camera which really took great pictures.

  5. Hi Denise, most of those you posted i haven't personally seen, but they are always so lovely in photos. I wish to once-in-a lifetime at least see them, especially that dogwood, OMG so lovely.

    1. The dogwood blooms this year were meager because it was just too hot and too dry. But in good years the tree is just gorgeous. Thanks for stopping by.

    2. Hi Denise, i came back for your comment in my post. You should have read my caption for the hoyas in full. The hoya is not in tree form, it is a vine that I allowed to climb a tree. That is the characteristic they do in natural tropical forests like our forests. More than 100 species are indigenous to my country. Thanks for your visit.

  6. Thank you for reminding all of us that color doesn't have to come through flowers. Why not post in December, too - even if it is just snow? Imagine those cranberry viburnum in snow. It would be so lovely. Alana ramblinwitham.blogspot.com

    1. Hmm. That means trudging through the yard in snow or maybe not if the warmth continues. I do enjoy the fall colors even if there are no pretty flowers, except on those roses out back which I neglected to post.

  7. We have lots of Burning Bush around here, too. Gorgeous! Too bad about the zebra grass. Your moon photo is especially captivating. Here's hoping the Farmer's Almanac is wrong about the upcoming brutal winter.

    1. My local weatherman can't even get the weather right while it is happening, lol. I need a job where I can be wrong half the time and still get paid.

  8. Great pictures. I envy your lovely fall colors.

  9. Oh, that kousa... beautiful leaves. And I like how you got a shot of the massive moon we had, through the branches! :)

  10. Now, your Cranberrybush Viburnum looks the way it is supposed to. The berries on mine always get eaten in September and it's driving me crazy!

    1. I am not sure why I still have berries on that shrub this year. The birds have devoured berries on everything else. Maybe they just got too full.
