Late-spring in Two Gardens for Garden Bloggers Bloom Day in November

The spring has brought with it a variety of colour and shapes and sizes! Our two gardens have exploded with new energy and with the weather still bringing us rain, we can enjoy the shades of green with splashes of colour!

Thank you for joining us for our November “Spring energy” …

Here’s what’s blooming in Barbie’s garden in November 2011

Now that my garden is in full production mode, there seems to be this energy in the air! The speed of growth in my garden is noticeable from one day to the next. I can see by the last GBBD post and it gives me great hope of new things to come. We are already enjoying a harvest of new potatoes and assorted lettuce leaves for salads. And my roses are in full bloom. Wow! I am loving my garden at the moment …

Here’s what’s blooming in Christines garden in November 2011

I’m actually a little dissapointed with my garden at the moment. The wonderful displays of early spring are long gone and there is no big “Wow Moment” in the garden right now. Lots is flowering but the blooms are either just starting their summer display or are fading away. So I am sorry that I don’t have anything awesome to show this month, but here are a few of my November Blooms.
