Late November Garden from From My Carolina Home

There is always something going on in the garden, even in late November when the air is chilly.  We’ve had several dark and overcast days, lovely rainy days to stay inside to sew or stitch or read.  Then we get brilliantly sunny days that set the colors in the trees to light.  While most of the leaves are now gone on the deciduous trees, there are still some left to enjoy.  The birds are coming around a lot now too, so get ready for a long and picture heavy post.

Vintage Halloween, Maple Leaves, Chocolate Cake from Canadian Needle Nana

I will admit I felt my heart do a little pitter- patter when the headline appeared in my email that The French Needle had opened their Christmas Boutique.  The offerings are all beautiful.  I spend ages looking through this site on a regular basis.

November in the Garden from From My Carolina Home

Autumn color is slow to develop this year, and it will be well into November before we can say we are seeing the peak.  Rain this past week should help some leaves stay on the trees, and freezing temps overnight may bring out some color before they all fall off.  At least I hope so.  Still, there are things to do in the garden before it gets into winter.

Autumn in the Garden from From My Carolina Home

It is Autumn in the garden, with the temperatures finally cooling off a bit this week.  I’ve been looking forward to chilly mornings and cool afternoons, which will bring on the color in the trees.  Around the garden, some interesting things decided to bloom in October.  It has been so warm, that my iris got confused, and waited to bloom until just last week.

I adore this white bloom, and it gave me two more before it was done.  A misty morning created droplets of water on the petals.

Autumn Stitching, Scrappy Flags, Geraniums from Canadian Needle Nana

 I worked in the garden Friday and Saturday and replanted the geraniums to inside pots.  They were so pretty in their driveway pot.

The pot itself sitting on a stump was here when we arrived and is lowly disintegrating into the ground.  In fact, this summer, something dug a hole in the bottom and was using it as a home.  It must have been cosy and imagine having flowers on your rooftop! This reminded me of those fairy houses people are making in their gardens.
I made this Chatelaine recipe for cauliflower and split pea soup.  I cooked it in ...
