Of course, in Texas we plant pansies in the fall anyway. They can survive temperatures below freezing, unless it gets terribly cold and stays cold for a protracted period of time. But for just brief cold spells, pansies thrive. Below are first the pansies I have recently planted, and then some photos of other plants that have surprised me by blooming still in November!
|I've always loved the little "faces" of pansies!|
|The only day lily with a bloom|
|"knock out" roses--these don't make good cut flowers,|
but they are wonderful in that they take so little care
|The next-door neighbors knock roses look better than mine. I think she dead heads|
hers, whereas I don't bother!
|More of what I think is Mexican sage. This is in the|
front flower bed; the two windows here
are also in my studio.
