Garden Blogger's Bloom Day

It finally stopped raining ! So I rushed out to find some November blooms. First stop   ….  Arcostaphlos 'Austin Griffiths' . Normally a January bloomer , perhaps feeling the stress this month ?

Same here with A. 'St Helens' , actually I'm not sure which is which .                                                                                        I've been digging out  a  clump of Japanese Anemone , so there is a a huge ugly hole  just out of view that I'm leaving , so I can keep picking out the many bits of Anemone that carry on growing. 

Mahonia 'charity' with Euphorbia ' oblongata' which has been blooming all summer long.

A new bloom ….Correa alba 'Ivory bells'
My favorite annual ...Emilia javanica

Rhabdosia longituba  survived  having been moved this summer. I'm running out of planting space for late  after noon shade plants .

Not blooms ,  but awfully cute Rosa  Chinensis hips , tiny , tiny hips. There are more blooms, but it looks like  more rain !
Happy Bloom day !


  1. My 'Austin Griffiths' is blooming, too! Do you think it's our long warm fall? That Emilia javanica is darn cute!

  2. That Correa look familiar. I'm so glad I pointed it out to you. Next year I gotta have one too.

    1. I'm glad you pointed it out too! I see JC have a few other Correa's , I'll be back for more !
