30 Day Challenge~~Thanksgiving~~Day 15...GBBD NOV...

Cat, at The Whimsical Gardener, has challenged us to a 30 Day Challenge of Thanksgiving.
A post a day, for 30 days, to celebrate the things we are thankful for, in our lives.

~~Day 15~~

I'm thankful for today.

It's dark and stormy out there.  Rain is coming down gently, but a good amount.
It'll take many more of these days to really make a dent in the drought.
But, again...we'll take what we can get.

I'm also thankful I got out yesterday to take photos.


After three freezes...two hard freezes...there's not much blooming.
But, there is a little.


chrysanthemum pacifica
I like this one more for the foliage.

Mealy Blue Sage


salvia greggii

About to be trimmed and moved inside for the winter.

my new Snapdragons

plumbago, pansies, snapdragons

My new pansies have pretty faces....

Hope you're having a great day, and the weather is giving you what you want.

Happy Bloomday...


  1. Love this rain too! Nice blooms, looks like you planted your gift certificate prizes.

    My plants look so happy, although the rain has shredded the blooms.

  2. Pretty new purchases.I would like to add thryallis to my garden this spring. It is on my list. :) Hope it is still raining. We are getting a few more little sprinkles,looks like the sun is trying to come out.

  3. Wasn't the rain wonderful!!! I did not get out yesterday for my GBBD post so all my photos have wet flowers and they are a little droopy but who cares- it rained!!!!

  4. Pretties in every direction. Happy Bloom Day.
