It's Bloomin' Tuesday!

I decided to take a walk around my gardens to see what I could find on this first day of November. It may look like I still have lots of blooms but some plants just had one lonely bloom braving our cool, windy weather.

My planted mums have finally flowered. I like this daisy like soft pink next to the Autumn Sedum

and this peach mum next to the dark burgundy coleopsis.

There was one Rose Campion,

one foxglove,

and a couple clusters of the tough Fever Few.

Tha blanket flowers still have several buds.

A few Toad Flax still hanging around.

Two of my dianthus are blooming again, but just a little.


I was surprised to find 2 Primroses in the shade garden, blooming under all the leaves.

Maybe I'll find more once I blow the leaves.

Endless Summer Hydrangea is another plant that looks good anytime.

These blue Cranesbill Geranium blooms are like the Energizer Bunny. They just keep going and going!

I even found a couple buds on the Goutweed.

We had a little snow in the air but who knows, we could still get some warm weather. It's amazing how determined some of my plants are to put out blooms. Do you have determined plants too? We'd love to hear about them. Just add your name, state and permalink to Mr Linky and add a link to this post on your blog. All that's left is to go on a garden tour from the comfort of your home. Enjoy the tour!

You still have quite a few things still lingering on in your garden. That Toad Flax is interesting looking. I actually have a post this week. :)
