Where Have All The Flowers Gone?

Actually, I know where they went. They said, "To heck with this crazy cold weather. I'm outa here!" But eventually that early cold snap got tired of torturing everything in its wake and typical 40-50 degree weather returned. Hallelujah!

And that is how Viburnum bodnantense 'Dawn' got her groove on.  

Pretty little blossoms... 

I love them. 

Even the buds look elegant. 
Despite the cold, a few flowers remain. 

I moved my Hebe diosmofolia 'Raspberry Ripple' to a protected spot during the cold snap.
And it's still blooming! 

Rodochitron is holding on. 

Barely.


(Himalayan Honeysuckle) Leycesteria formosa 'Golden Lantern' is still happy too. 

Look at how the Cyclamen hederafolium foliage is spreading. 

Finally my backyard Japanese Maple is turning. So pretty. 

My Acer palmatum NOID is blushing too. 

Hebe 'Shamrock' also blushes when the weather gets cool. 

As does Sedum spurium 'Dragon's Blood' 
Happy Thanksgiving, everyone!
