Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day November 2012

What's blooming in Mississippi, USA, zone 7

Pansies are the stars of the November garden.

Monday night we had our first frost. The pansies just shrugged and kept on blooming!

Though not as showy as the Pansy, Oxalis brightens a shady corner.

Most of the Lantana blooms are gone. These few are in a more sheltered spot.

Best of all, my Thanksgiving Cactus is beginning to bloom in the kitchen!

Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

Thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens for hosting Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day.


  1. Love your cactus!! Happy Bloom Day :)

  2. I need to plant pansy's for some color on my porch.

    Pretty shots.

  3. Thank goodness for pansies and violas! They add such a nice bit of brightness to the fall and winter gardens in our zones, don't they? I'm very behind getting mine planted--I have them, but sick children have prevented much gardening time. I love your Thanksgiving cactus--mine is also beginning to bloom. Happy GBBD!

  4. I haven't purchased any pansies or violas this year. oh well... still time I think. My Cactus is still plump buds, not ready to open for a while yet. Love it when they do....nice treat!!

  5. Lovely post...don't you just love Oxalis!

  6. You have a nice variety of pansies. We haven't had frost yet but expect it any day. And I really need to plant some violas for bulb cover. Your Thanksgiving cactus is very pretty. Happy Bloom Day and Happy Thanksgiving!

  7. Oxalis is a swear word in my garden! I know you can get non-invasive ones, but I've spent too much time digging up the tiny clusters of spreading bulbs to ever willing bring it in. It's delicate little flowers are very pretty though. And your Thanksgiving cactus is lovely too!

  8. Hi Lea,

    Lovely photos - I have a very nice basked for Viola blooming at the moment and was tempted to buy more for various pots to brighten the garden. They're such great little bloomers :)

  9. I love their sunny, funny faces! I wish that Lantana was hardy in our zone 7 gardens.

  10. How nice to have oxalis blooming away! Happy November!


I enjoy your comments!
