Gardening in November

Chessie & Me "Quaker Bee Sampler" 

Look, look!  Bee Skep - Done.  Alphabets - Done.  Numbers - Done.  Bees 50% Completed.  All that remains are two bees and the flower motif - all stitched over one...hmmm...

I mentioned last week that my Mom and I had visited a local Nursery.  

We bought two Agaves (in the back), a couple of Cyclamen, and several Pansies. 

I managed to get everything planted...

...and set out on the Front Porch.

It's nice to have a climate that allows for some Winter color!

We also bought bulbs - Tulips, Narcissus, and Muscari.
They should make an appearance in March/April.  Gardening is an optimistic avocation after all.  You plant a seed or tuber or bulb and wait and see what will come.

Pansies are such cheery flowers, they never lose their appeal.

Your place must be beautiful! Very pretty flowers. I unfortunately, never have the patience to plant seeds etc. ~ my sister on the other hand never buys anything already growing if she can grow it from scratch. :)
