Bloom Day: November, 2009

This is my first Bloom Day! Bloom day is hosted (and created by) Carol at May Dreams Gardens. Every month on the 15th bloggers share pictures of what is blooming in their gardens.

Not much blooms in North Country this time of year. But it has been a spectacular Fall and I am just thankful we are not under snow cover yet – as we usually are! Most of my blooms have faded but are still standing, and a few brave ones are still blooming – incredible. I usually do not “clean up” until early Spring so the birds can enjoy the seeds, and the bugs the cover, during the winter. I still find the faded blooms beautiful and the color of leaves “bloom” in their own right. Here’s a tour of what’s “blooming” in my garden.
