Here is a brief garden update -- yes, there are things still in bloom, because this is the Pacific Northwest and it's only mid-November. Granted, there aren't a lot of things in bloom, and I suspect some of them to be weeds, but hey, maybe it's better to have a few pretty weeds than no flowers at all.
I planted these snapdragons in May. They didn't bloom until August. They are still blooming. Go figure.
Not a flower, but a lovely fall color now on the Japanese Maple:
This is my favorite floribunda rose, which has been in continuous bloom since late May:
The white flowers in between the hostas are what I think is a weed -- I certainly didn't plant it, though it is attractive, so maybe I did. Who knows? It's blooming, and that means I'm keeping it for now!
