Mid-November at Leticia's Garden


Here are some pictures of what I have blooming at my garden in the middle of November. 

 Last night was the first time the temperatures got really low around here. I walked through my 
garden this morning to see what the frost had done and the only flowers I saw damaged were the 
dahlias and black eyed susans. Which made me very happy because not just I get to enjoy many of
my flowers for a little longer, but I can also use the pictures I had already taken for this post!

I'm so happy to have these many flowers at my garden!
But I have to confess, it is also full of weeds, as you can see in the picture above.

After not caring for my garden for 2 years, the lilies, evening primroses and black eyed
susans, have taken over. In the last couple of months I have been uprooting some of them
which left me with a lot of  bare spots that the weeds have quickly filled in.

Currently I'm putting down mulch, which it might be a little too late, at least it'll give
some nice curb appearance to my home for the winter. Thankfully I have the cat to help me!

  1. Delightful series of beautiful flowers and very cute picture of your cat walking over the mulch. Thank you for identifying your flowers. I learned new things today :)

  2. Your flowers are still so beautiful! It's so hard to stay on top of weeds, I know! But you still have so much lovely color in your garden. Very nice post!

  3. Beautiful shots of the flowers! Coneflowers are some of my all time favorites, and I once took a time-lapse video of a snapdragon bloom opening--it was neat to watch! Glad to see you have good help!

  4. Lovely flowers !! Your shots are excellent as always !
    Have a nice Sunday :)

  5. Unas preciosas imágenes llenas de colorido y aroma con este gato juguetón.
    Vengo del blog de Laura M. (Así me gusta el Mundo) y me ha encantado tu Espacio; por lo cual me hago seguidor de tan bello Rincón.

  6. Wonderful shots of your flowers. I have a few sedums, but otherwise everything is gone.

  7. Lovely flowers, and such a sweet cat! :)

  8. Stunning...each and every image.
    The 'unknown'....could that be a Gerbera daisy?

  9. You are so lucky to have so many beautiful flowers in your garden still. The weather has turned really cold here in Virginia, so we only have a few flowering plants eft. Winter is clearly coming our way very soon.

  10. So many lovely flowers! We had sneo here so that will be the end of flowers until next spring. Your cat looks like a happy fellow!
