My Gardens in November of 2015

I am determined to get caught up with my garden posts!

My Kitchen Garden in November of 2015

The gravel path gets covered in leaves by November. I swear it is under there somewhere.

Puss, one of my neighbor’s cats, was still enjoying sitting on the garden bench in November since it was a warm fall.

The Alaska Nasturtium crawled its way toward the garden bench, as well.

Despite the increasingly cold weather, the flowers of the red Gift Zinnias hung on!

Kale ‘Redbor,’ with its ruffled, dark purple leaves. This is an edible kale, however it requires massaging to get it to soften up a bit before cooking.

Leaks, Rainbow Chard, Merlot Lettuce, and Arugula still looking good in November?! Was true!

My Flower Garden in November of 2015

The garden chair was still a pleasant place to sit, even this late in fall.

In this shot, the hostas were devastated by the first frost.

Behind the chair, Mr. Gnome guzzled down some fall cider outside his house.

The flower garden was a mix of browns, greens, and yellows.

Those roses, oh those roses. They just weren’t willing to give up quite yet.

The wisteria leaves put on their fall color on top of the shed.

The grass was surprisingly green for this time of the year, again due to it being warmer than usual. The silver of the sage shows we were still able to enjoy some herbs even this late in the year.

The leaves coated most of the moss in the Secret Garden.

The angel slept in a blanket of leaves in this same area.

Also in the Secret Garden, the flowers on this hydrangea turned a bright pinkish red.
