A Single Bloom: GBBD, November 2010

November 15, 2010

After more than a week of freezing nights, my southern Pennsylvania garden is well along in the transition from fall to winter.

Even sedum ‘Matrona’ has gone into dormancy. spent sedum (photo credit: Jean Potuchek)

But hidden away, protected by overhanging foliage of daylilies and irises, a small shoot of sedum boasts a single pink bloom.

Garden bloggers’ bloom day is hosted on the 15th of each month by Carol at May Dreams Gardens. Visit her garden to see what’s in bloom this month in gardens around the world (including perhaps some lush spring displays from our gardening friends in the southern hemisphere).

    How lovely that in all that dormancy your sedum has burst forth in its beauty.

    I love how when all seems lost there is always something offering color . . . in bloom or seed . . . In transition perhaps. A bit of hope . . . enough to make your heart smile. Thanks Jean. ;>)

    Jean – it always pays off to keep looking to find something lovely and unexpected. Great photos.

    Isn’t it fun to find one hidden away blossom when you expect none?

    And what a beautiful bloom it is! My hosta leaves were so pretty and yellow and golden this year … but now they are quite wilted. I love foliage and form almost as much as the blooms. Maybe we should start a foliage & form day?

    Oh, wow. A tiny hint of color amidst all those sleeping beauties. I’d say your garden is ready for winter. 🙂

    Well, I’m glad you joined the party! And really, even if nothing is left in December, it’s perfectly fine to participate… Happy bloom day!

    One last brave little blossom! I hope you get some more soon – even just indoors if the weather doesn’t allow for it in your garden!
