Today I remembered that I needed to plant a few more bulbs --they've been languishing in a box while we welcomed three new kitties. Today, the 4th of November, was a balmy, sunny, day. I managed to get the rest of the tulips and grape hyacinths in the ground.
Then I walked down to where I'd planted some bulbs earlier, and found that the grape hyacinth are a bit confused about the season.
As is this groundcover, which normally blooms in late spring.
I am beginning to wonder if we're ever going to get a freeze. Usually by this time a freeze has created beautiful puddles of bright red and gold leaves at the base of the trees. No so this year --the leaves are coming down slowly with the winds.
