I’ve taken advantage of some of these unseasonally warm November days to clean up the perannial gardens.
Hidden under a carpet of fallen leaves.
And I’ve been surprised, more than once, at what I’ve found.
Tucked in among the grasses.
Just see what a little persistence can do.
I'm a long time banker having worked in banks since the age of 17. I took a break when I turned 50 and went back to school. I graduated right when the economy took a turn for the worst and after a year of library work found myself unemployed. I was lucky that my previous bank employer wanted me back. So here I am again, a long time banker. Change is hard.

A lovely bloom. We’ve got leaves here, plenty of them– but the perennial flowers are long gone from the garden. Except for one geranium in a pot that I’ve moved close beside the house. Fingers crossed I can keep it alive until Thanksgiving… just because.

Hope persists… yes it does!

You found some beauties! Something tells me we’re going to pay for all this warmth though.

Persistence can reveal some hidden beauties we might otherwise overlook.

Have I got a perennial garden to clean for you!!! Mine has been so neglected this Summer, it’s hard to discern plant from weed.
