Foxgloves grow wild around here and make their way into lots of gardens. They're a beautiful plant. Yours are lovely. I hope they'll give you a few more blooms before they expire.

My carnations and johnny-jump-ups are still going strong. My mums aren't looking too good, which is too bad because I thought they were going to last into December. Oh well, they were nice while they lasted.

My mums were a flop this year. Now I'm wondering if they have just died back for the winter, or are completely gone. Guess I'll find out next year. I'll have my rosemary and sage for a little green all winter--and of course, honeysuckle. It's such a pest, here.

In Arkansas, if you stand in place too long, it will become rooted to you!

Those flowers are very pretty. I will have to remember them for next year. All of our flowers are pretty much gone. They did not do very well at all this summer with the heat and no rain. I am kind of looking forward to the glistening snow when we have a full moon...it is so pretty outside then....

No need to use humans, CT~just plant a rose bush--it LOVES them.

Marie, moonlight on the snow sounds quite lovely right now. I always love the first snow or three--then it gets old.

This week we have had absolutely beautiful days, with blue skies, sunshine, and 60's/70's......calling for snow by end of next week. This is crazy!

I will do just that. Thank you, RoseMary! What a pretty and scent-filled idea...roses and honeysuckle!

For Christmas, my son and d-i-l gave me a hyacinth kit, with a pot and bulbs and soil. I planted them the first week of January.

Every hyacinth that I've seen has grown tall stalks with the flowers on it. Well, take a look at what I have...the bulbs are just barely open, and the (scented) flowers are already coming! I'm interested to know if anyone has seen this happen before. I'm grateful for flowers in February!
