This is the first full year of growing for this camellia. I can't remember if it's called Christmas Cheer or Yuletide? This is the first bloom for this year.
I have been pleased with the acuba's ability to rebound. I found 3 brutally uprooted and tossed in the trash heap last year and rescued them. They have proven to be beautiful and tough and very tolerant of dry shade. I think I'll keep them!
I thought these persimmons made a pretty picture against the blue sky. We have a couple of small trees that have been loaded down this year. Last year there were hardly any. I have actually eaten a few of them...tasty.
Oh to see the fresh green variegation of Italian Arum--a delight when so much is brown.
I plan to use these pretty rose hips in some winter arrangements soon.
That's about the size of things here in southern middle Tennessee for November. I am not relishing the winter that lies ahead but God knows best. He knows we gardeners would work our fool selves to death if He didn't run us inside for a few months each year!
