Thanks for visiting - I'm off to May Dreams Gardens to register my monthly blooms and check out blooms elsewhere!

I thought I was here. I was there. No matter. Fence lizards, we have the eastern kind. Sometimes one jumps on me. EEEEEEEk! Oh, it' only you.

Lots to see at your place. Great post.

That monkeyflower looks really happy there. It's terribly difficult to make that species look quite as happy here.

Very nice! It's interesting to see your Hot Lips salvia, some of it all red, some of it bi-colored. Mine went through most of summer looking all-white, and now it's just starting with the bi-colors. This plant is driving me crazy trying to predict it. (It's a good crazy, at least.) And it's nice to see the start of coyotebush season, one of my favorite bonuses of later autumn. Happy GBBD!

Quite nice for November. Good to see the coyote bush start up. I'm surprised about those manzanita flowers. Seems too early, but I guess the season is coming.

Lovely post...that Deer Grass is so striking...must find some next year. I so wish that Verbena lilacena like my site...I had some a few years ago and it just didn't make it through our wet winter...maybe I'll try again next year :-)

J'aime le flou et le fond flou. Il fait ressortir les couleurs que les principaux éléments.
