Where Does the Time Go???

 I can't believe it is already November!  Where does the time go??
Here is one of my most favorite combos I have done lately.  I think I am the happiest with this collection at least right now.....
mexican mint marigold 
I am posting some of the beautiful things that have been blooming lately- I love this time of year, I guess that is where the time has gone, I have been outside and not at the computer!
The Mexican Mint Marigold are STUNNING - full of color and the scent of licorice.

fall aster
 It is fall, so true to the name, the Fall Aster are blooming like mad.
mexican flame vine antigonon
 The Mexican Flame Vine on the back fence is blooming away- I took this like a week ago but it is as beautiful if not more so right now- the Antigonon is mixed in with it and both are growing happily on fence in the full sun.
mountain sage
 The Mountain Sage is full of blooms.
spanish lavender
 The Spanish Lavender are an old time favorite of mine.  Tried and true- I just love them.  Such an intricate bloom- they are just gorgeous. 
lions tail
 The Lion's Tail are blooming- I can't decide if I like them like this the best or when they are in full bloom.  The Monarchs have been all over these today also.  I tried to get a photo but only had my phone with me today and they didn't come out very clear so I didn't include.
 The Firespikes are starting to bloom- I LOVE these- they are such great plants for the shade too with a HUGE bloom and burst of color. 
 here is one of the pots I put together showing off the Lions Tail.  Such a great plant. 
 Here is little miss thing being lazy.  Too cute- had to share.
And to follow, little Coop mimicking her- they are so neglected, you almost feel sorry for them.


  1. Why is time flying faster all of the time? November? Really? You've still got a lot of interesting things blooming in your neck of the woods! Love the last two pictures best of all.

  2. Looks fantastic! Amazing what rain and cooler temps will do for plants. Your Mexican Mint Marigold and Fall Asters are so pretty! Your furry friends look pretty cute as well:)

    1. Thanks!!!! They are a lot of fun and just now starting to get along which is nice. If he would just stop chasing her........

  3. Beautiful photos!
    Greetings, RW & SK

  4. I have no idea where the time goes, but I was just thinking that same thing. I'm completely unprepared for winter, but time waits for no gardener, so I guess I had better get a move on. I wish I could lay around like Cooper. He looks very comfy.

    1. He is a mess but so fun. They said a little freeze is coming- who knows- I saw you pulled everything in - guess it's that time of year!

  5. Aren't you lucky to still have blooms in November. Our nights are frosting. Thanks for sharing your flowers and your cute pets.

    1. We are supposed to get a little light freeze tomorrow- will see but nothing cold yet. The days are actually really nice right now. We don't have all your fall color sadly but I do enjoy this weather.
