My Garden In Late November

These are some snapshots of my late fall garden. It still has a lot of color. 

Gooseberry



November is typically the most rainy month in Western Washington. 
But, we shouldn't complain after having almost three rainless months earlier this year .

Love this carpet from the Japanese maple's leaves:







Berberis thunbergii 'Maria' (Gold Barberry):


Blackcurrant:


A very late cleome:

Clematis:

Campanula poscharkyana 'Blue Waterfall' (Serbian Bellflower):

Japanese aralia, my favorite:


Endless Summer Hydrangea:



Japanese maple:

Angel's Blush Hydrangea:


Japanese maple Shindeshojo:


Senecio mandraliscae Blue Finger:

Melianthus and Hardy Fuchsia look pretty summery:


Scilla: 

Since it's fall, I'll finish this post with an appropriately yellow blackcurrant:

Empty Bowls

Happy Thanksgiving Everyone!
Today, I 'd like to show you some of the 1,200 bowls that artists of Pierce County, WA, made and sold during the Empty Bowl event (11/18/2012)
 to help feed the hungry.
All proceeds go to the Emergency Food Network.
Empty Bowls is an international grassroots effort to fight hunger whose basic premise is simple:
Potters and other craftspeople, educators, students and others create handcrafted bowls that are meant to remind people of all of the empty bowls in the world.
 

















One of the artists, Jen Davis, with her beautiful bowl at the event:


















 
Please, join the Empty Bowl fundraiser in your area.

You can read about the event HERE and HERE.
