November Flowers

Friday, November 14th, 2008

novembermyrtle.jpgIn Lansing, Michigan, USA, we had a gorgeous, perfect summer. It seemed to only rain at night, and the days were lovely and seemed to last forever. I loved every minute.

I am not a cold-weather grrl. However, the colors of autumn placate me as the temperatures drop. We had beautiful colors this year, and since we have not yet had a very hard frost, some of the trees are still full of crimson or burgundy leaves.

I went out in the yard and took photos of two myrtle flowers, two violets, one dandelion, two impatiens plants and several petunias (which were drooping but still showed color).

Last Sunday, we got snow. It was wet and warm as snow goes, but we got enough that it stuck overnight. What a change in less than a week!

novemberimpatiens.jpgRight now we do not have snow, it is above freezing during the day, but we are not going back to violets until March, I’d bet. Here are some photos to give you a smile. Notice the brown leaves in the grass next to the flowers… it is definitely autumn here in spite of the flowers’ insistence otherwise!
