Giving Thanks

Here's a little photo journal of what's blooming here at CG this Thanksgiving holiday!

Yum...and so pretty!
Greg's greens garden is coming along. He decided to try 'no till' method of planting and it seems to be a slow go.
Nasturtium are coming up all over the place and the Rosemary is in bloom and covered with bees!
Mums from Julie's yard.
The flower on the Silverado Sage is so lovely and often overlooked because when it blooms the entire shrub is purple!
Cone Flower looking a bit pale...this is the last one left!
The delicate veins of the Arugula simple and elegant.
Thyrallis in her new location!
The Fall Aster is looking a bit haggard after being cooked and ignored this summer...but she's still shining like snowflakes!
The sage is also a big bee magnet!
We've had quite a few butterflies this fall, but nothing like we have in the past.
All of the roses are blooming, but none smell so sweet as Cecille Bruenner!
Hopefully we won't get a hard freeze before the Loquats arrive...we didn't get any last year.
Mexican Honeysuckle
Shrimp Plant
Butterfly weed still covered in blooms
And there are two favorites for Thanksgiving in my yard, Mexican Tarragon and Copper Canyon Daisy...I've always made a big yellow bouquet for the table of them...but alas the daisy didn't make it this summer...neither did the kids so things just didn't seem quite right.
Nevertheless, we woke to find screech in his box and he made a very fine guest! I hope your holiday is fantastic! I for one, and thankful for tiny flowers that brighten my day....yearlong in Tejas!
Happy Gardening!

Oh my gosh, look at your beautiful garden! I love the photos. I wish we had owls, we do have plenty of woodpeckers though! I think the little sprinkling of rain we had really helped my seedlings and I hear there is another little sprinkle expected this weekend.

So very lovely! It is funny, some of your fall flowers are some of my summer ones!
