Soggy, surprise November blooms

An early morning stroll with a camera today revealed a few surprise blooms for Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day, November 2020. Brunnera ‘Jack Frost’ was one, flowering completely out of season. It is a Spring bloomer. A Lewsia growing in a greenhouse pot was another. Not a surprise today, was the out of season flowers of the Oxeye daisy. I had spotted a couple at a distance previously.

Today remained dark and damp all day. The feature image above shows a complete contrast to the feature image of September Highlights from the garden. Both had the starry, yellow Rudbekia’s. September had Rudbeckia Goldstrum standing tall in the sunshine, a beauty, which has since gone leaving the smaller Rudbeckia ‘Little Goldstar’ some light to keep going. It too is on its way out now. Note to self, move Goldstar to a pot for 2021.

The slide show below includes all the November bloomers from this Scottish garden. They are more hanger’s on than fully in flower here. To see what’s flowering in other parts of the UK and all around the world, head over to May Dreams Gardens where Carol hosts this monthly celebration of what’s in our gardens on the 15th. It’s great to see the variety. Happy Bloom Day everyone, I hope this finds you all safe and well.

  1. Interesting to see your November blooms Shirl. We have one or two in common 😄 I’m surprised to see your brunnera in flower. Mine is look rather forlorn and is slowly retreating underground for it’s annual sleep. A gardening radio programme I listened to today mentioned that there are some weird and wonderful flowering events going on all down to our a topsy-turvy weather this year.

    1. Yes, Anna I was surprised by this particular Jack Frost too. The leaves weren’t too bad at this point also. Yes, there have been more surprise flowerings this year, I’d agree.

  2. It’s been such a topsy turvy year in the garden hasn’t it? I had hellebores in bloom a couple of months ago and they’re still on the go. Perhaps the change in the weather over the next day or so will help to set things a bit straighter. In the meantime enjoy those surprises!

    1. Yes, it has Michelle, my out of season flowering rhododendron has done so twice! Ah, hellebores can go quite a while here too, not two months though. Except for my December ones which are great doers. Oh yes, thanks, enjoy your surprises too 😊
