It's the Plants, Darling

Bloom Day in Ranterville, November edition


Ironically, the only one of us who might have more actual flowers (Amy) is traveling, but what the heck, here goes:


Michele has some saffron crocus, grown purely for the thrill of harvesting her own saffron. You can see the little threads. Cool!


I don’t have too much going on outside and what is out there is mostly covered in roof grit, but I took some pictures anyway. Fall color is what it’s all about: hosta, red maple, hydrangea, and Boston ivy. I have more at my blog.


Susan has beautiful color going as well as berries. Check out her winterthur viburnum. I also love her Japanese maple (those can’t be beat for fall color), serviceberry, and hydrangea, which looks like a similar macrophylla to mine. See more at her blog.

I also, at the top, show an image of my cyclamen and African violet, currently in bloom, just to demonstrate that there are other ways to have cold weather color!

    Yep, for many of us, its about the fall color, especially if we’ve experience the “killing frost” and the blooms are done. Thanks for joining in again!
