I'm back to blogging, but this isn't me in the saddle. It's Phillip, horseback riding while on a family vacation to Yellowstone last summer.
It's true that all of our pretty spring, summer and autumn color is gone and we're left with mostly brown, but that's no excuse not to get outside with my camera and look for something that's still growing. If not growing, then at least something that catches my eye.
I took the camera along when I walked out to get the mail today and found both the Foamflower (Tiarella 'Pirate's Patch') and Heuchera (Coral Bells 'Caramel') wearing their fall colors and looking rather nice.
The Lamium 'Beacon's Silver' must like cool weather because it's still pushing out some violet-colored blooms.
We have several of these bushes in our yard that show off nice clumps of berries in November. I don't know the name of the bushes, but I like them.
Back in the summer, I grew a pumpkin plant that produced plenty of flowers, but not even one teeny, tiny pumpkin. I wasn't expecting one that weighed 1,232 pounds, but one pumpkin would have been nice. In the plant's defense, it suffered miserably from mildew.
I saw this colorful sign at the edge of a drab November cornfield. There was no sign of the dairy being under construction. Clever name.
Now that I've managed to publish a post, I'll be around to visit your blogs and see what you've been up to lately.
