I just love this beautiful red color when our Japanese maple starts changing colors!

I hope everyone has a very happy Thanksgiving!  I know I have so much to be thankful for! ♥️ #happythanksgiving #thanksgiving2017 #bethankful
Super disappointed in these Palram clips you can use for hanging baskets in your greenhouse.  This basket wasn't even that heavy, and it fell. 😦  I'm glad the fall didn't destroy by verbena completely.  Hopefully it bounces back.

First thing I did before sitting down to drink my coffee this morning was check on my plants. It's currently 31°F, and so many of my annuals are still alive! Even my elephant ears are okay!

My camellia in full bloom! 😍  I have no idea how old this camellia is!  It was here at the house when we moved in August 2009.

Tonight I'm going to lose my dill that's been doing so well in the garden this fall.  First frost/freeze of the season for us tonight.  It's getting down into the high 20's. 🙁

My amber flower carpet roses I transplanted a couple months ago are blooming again!

Potted up some of my seedlings today, and moved my gardenia cuttings into the greenhouse. Looks like we'll be getting our first frost tomorrow night.

I have little baby volunteer zinnias popping up everywhere around the larger plants!  I am tempted to dig some up and save them, even though I have saved plenty of seeds from the plants this year.

My dad got my mom an early Christmas present!  She wanted a greenhouse.  I was visiting with them yesterday and snapped a picture to share.  I get my green thumb from her!

Another of my confederate rose blooms (the worms haven't gotten to all the buds thankfully). It's just so beautiful! 😍

Even though there is some type of mold growing on the soil, my lemon tree has 2 baby lemons that are growing!

Well, I'm not sure how it happened.  Probably because mint is such an invasive plant, but it found it's way over/under/around the divider in my planter I built.  I guess this whole planter will be dedicated to mint now!  I've already pulled a runaway twig from the cilantro side, and now it's popping up in stranger places!

I moved this pot of "Frost Fire" petunias into the greenhouse for now.  Now that it's a little cooler here, they are doing so well!
