November Flowers

This year we experienced the longest frost-free period at our little community of Fauquier, BC. It was not unusual to see the meadows in the valley white covered in hoarfrost in the early morning hours at the end of August. Now we are already in November and the hardier flowers are still blooming, which I decided to photograph for your enjoyment.

    It is incredible how many flowers are still flowering. Here some have folded down because of night frosts, but others are unstoppable. Even some of the roses still have buds. Maybe they will make it into flowers … 😉 … some plants can’t even take half a degree of frost, like the beautiful nasturtium of yours. So you must have had a mild November so far.

    Isn’t nice to have so many splendid colours still? So good for the eye!

      Yes, indeed, the November was so far unusually mild. When the sky clears at night, frost will be knocking at our doors too. Greetings from Canada!

    Peter, those flowers are beautiful! They are appreciated, as everything is snow covered and it is 9 F about -23 C here in interior Alaska, which is warmer than usual. Amazing that the flowers are still blooming. Thank you for sharing!

      Oh how I’would wish to send you some of our mild weather. Minus 23 C, that sounds pretty cold to me.

        It is relatively mild here but winter is here. At this time of year we can have -53 C or colder.

    Quite some variety of flowers in your place! I assume they must be growing in the wild without any care. Flowers definitely adds beauty to any place

      Today we had the first frost in 7 months. That is also the end of our flowers’ splendour until next spring. Thank you, Arv! Your comments are always appreciated.

    Amazing how much color there still is. We have had a few early morning frosts, including this morning. I can’t say I welcome their appearance.

    Lovely shots, as usual, Peter. I’m also experiencing the winter comes a bit late for this year in Istanbul.

    Auch in unserem Garten und auf den Wiesen blüht es fleissigst weiter, während die Welt drumrum immer roter und orangener wird. Was für ein Jahr!!!
    liebe Grüße, Ulli
