Frigid Bloom Day

Here in the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, we are experiencing an unusually cold November, much like the rest of the US. Freezing night temps have zapped all my summer annuals and tender  perennials.

My cool season annuals are hanging in. The snapdragons are actually looking decent after being in the garden since March and I have a white aster that has weeded itself about the place.

Elsewhere in my garden, I have blooming:
- Mums

- Calendula
- Bacopa

- Pansies/Viola
- Sweet Alyssum
and more...

What is blooming in your garden today?

It is the 15th of the month, which means Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day again. To view links to other garden bloggers' blooms around the world to see what it blooming in their gardens today and to read their collective comments, go to:


  1. The temperatures are plummeting here in the northeast as well and the first frost did in a lot of the blooms, but some of the foliage and blooms are persistently holding on. Your annuals are looking good. It is amazing how some of them actually hold on longer than the perennials, even with the frost! Happy Bloom Day and happy autumn!

  2. My snapdragons were looking good too. I didn't know that they enjoyed the cold.
