I Still Can't Believe It's November!!!

Lions Tail- Vivero Growers Nursery
I still can't believe it is November.  Where has the time gone?  I wanted to show a few blooms and things that have been looking pretty as of late.  The Lion's Tail is one of my favorite blooms.  I think it is so funny they call it a Lion's Tail when to me it looks like a lions head!  The little blooms are so unique yet be careful, they are a little spiky too.  The hummingbirds love this plant as well which came as a surprise to me to see them on it. 
American Beautyberry- Vivero Growers Nursery
 Another good ol' stand by is the American Beautyberry.  This time of year the berries turn this vibrant purple and if the birds don't get all the berries when the leaves drop in the winter you have these beautiful sticks of purple berries!   I had a comment recently on our Facebook page that someone found the berries in the raccoon poop!  Who knew raccoons liked this too?!?!
Peruvian Cereus- Vivero Growers Nursery
The Peruvian Cereus bloom never ceases to stop me in my tracks.  This plant needs to be protected/brought in in the winter time here in Austin but is well worth it.  The blooms are amazing.  They are huge- not sure if you can tell but they are huge.  This photo was taken by my husband on his iPhone.  Great shot I thought!!  Especially from a phone!!
Vivero Growers Nursery
I never get tired of seeing these little guys and I always have to stop and look at them.  They are just so animated and so cute.  I saw a few babies running around yesterday.  I went to grab the camera but they had moved on.
Kalanchoe bloom -Vivero Growers Nursery
 This little fuzzy Kalanchoe sent up a bloom spike.  I think I ended up liking the spike more than the bloom itself....
