November 15, 2009. It’s a stretch to find bloomers in November in south central Connecticut. Mostly you have to look low, where this thyme hugs the ground and nearby steps so it can soak up any lingering warmth.
From now till spring, the most colorful blossoms come from inside plants, like this gerbera blossom liberated from it’s parent residing in a garage window, and the holiday cactus that thrives in bright indoor light.
Enjoy these blossoms, but also visit May Dreams Gardens, where Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day originated. There master-mind Carol shares her gardens’ bounty, and hundreds of other bloggers post links so all can get a peek at their gardens as well. Visit as many as you can, it’s a great way to brighten a fall day.
