Bloomin Tuesday! in November?

It is getting to be quite the challenge to find anything blooming in my Canadian garden at this time of the year.So out I went with my camera to find something of interest.
Shady's seeds she shared with me, are in the ground and under my version of a green house. So hope I get some germination.

I received a gift on my birthday from Louise my neighbour , crocus. In the ground they have gone.

Will look forward to a lovely early spring surprise in 2011, wonder if I will get all the colours shown on the package..
So what is flowering?


Icicle pansies planted a couple of weeks ago have settled in very happily and tho I took off all the flowers and buds when planted they have come on with lots of blooms . Find pansies so cheery.... placed them just outside the dining room patio doors so can enjoy them thru the winter.
Whatever will I find to post next week?

Rosemary, You have been busy planting. I say I'm going to put in more bulbs every year but never do. The pansies are so pretty. Loive them! Jean

Patsi said...

Oh boy...now you reminded me of another thing I haven't done yet...plant bulbs.

Rosanne said...

The pansies will do well where you planted them!

We have yet to have a hard freeze here; same thing happened last year. So we still have lots in bloom.
Your pansies look great. Do they bloom all winter?

Your pansies are lovely. I always debate whether I'll plant pansies or not. They never return in the spring so they only give a tiny bit of color for such a short time. But when I see yours I wish I had planted some.

Nothing like a cheerful pansy. Have loved them since I was a child.

Whooo! You have done great things - hopefully the seeds grow!! :-) You will know next Spring, I think!

The Icicle pansies do bloom up until a very hard frost then in the spring they come back very quickly and put on a big show until mid summer when they become scraggley.
