Late Season Blooming Flowers

Last Monday, November 16th I was cutting back perennials in Trumbull, Connecticut in USDA Hardiness Zone 6b.  I noticed a couple of beautiful late season blooming flowers.

We’ve already had several hard frosts.  Most of the leaves have fallen off the trees and been cleaned up.

I first noticed a grouping of Honorine Jobert Windflower (Anemone × hybrida ‘Honorine Jobert’) flowers glistening in a sunbeam.

A little farther away a Fairy Rose (Rosa ‘The Fairy) was strutting its stuff.

Here’s a picture from a distance.

I admit late season blooming flowers don’t compare to mid-summer.  In the cold and gloomy days of late fall I’ll take whatever I can get.

Wisteria – Mother Nature Trumps Man Every Time

Last week I saw a wisteria in full bloom weeping from a blasted ledge.  No matter how hard I try to create beautiful landscapes mother nature can beat me without trying.

Weeping Wisteria
The wisteria starts at the top of the cliff and weeps like a waterfall. It’s stunning.

If you’re driving down Whitney Avenue in Trumbull, CT in early-May keep your eyes open for the wisteria on the ledge between the entrance to Indian Ledge Park and the Route 25 overpass.
