Welcome to November in Pennsylvania!
It has been a colder fall this year than what we had last year when there was a clematis blooming for GBBD... and yet, we have not had any frost like last year. I was concerned the garden would not be interesting enough for a post this month, but when I bundled up for my walk around I was pleasantly surprised! Though the leaves are all down and the bulbs have all been tucked in for winter, there are still a few florets and petals about the place.
|Cherry Corner garden with vivid yellow daylily (Hemerocallis) foliage and Sedum 'Autumn Joy' around the weeping cherry tree, which gives this garden its name.|
|The Circle Lawn is just behind Cherry Corner garden and has a hedge of Sedum 'Autumn Joy' around it also. These two stands help to give this area some coherence because your eye naturally connects each one to the other.|
|A few brave yellow foxgloves still out in the cold (Digitalis grandiflora). Our days are now quite chilly, down in the 30's and 40's F (-1 to 7 C).|
|The little white flowers in the Driveway Garden are not flowers at all, but seeds from my favorite native flat-topped aster, Doellingeria umbellata. Everything is admittedly a bit of a mess at this time of year, with the wind and leaves blowing about. But I still like appreciating the different greens and blues in this border... especially if you squint :)|

|Jumping up to the Hill Garden, we have a few fading Rosa 'The Fairy' hanging on through the cold.|
|Here is the Hill Garden with the low November light going down behind it. I am pleased with the color variation in the foliage at this time of year.|

|More Sedum 'Autumn Joy' set between some barberry bushes. The silvery lamb's ears (Stachys byzantine) are always nice, even in the winter months. A few Allium tuberosum seed heads are still standing in this garden, along with the coneflower.|
