Late Season Blooms

I picked these for you















I can't believe it is November and many propagated blooms are still around. All the native species have figured it was time to prepare for a restful winter and left the scene. The Turkey Vultures have even flown the coop, and never said goodbye. The nice part of this is they will be replaced with Bald Eagles. Almost every county in the state of Iowa has nesting eagles, but coming up they will be thick in areas where the rivers don't freeze over, arriving from up north.

  1. That's not a bad trade-off, turkey buzzards for Eagles.

    Flowers are always good. Thanks.

  7. Hi Steve - yes ... we still have flowers - it used to be incongruous at this time of year ... now they stick around. Our birds have flown to Africa, but the littlies are still around chattering away and eating as much seed as they can find ... cheers Hilary

  9. The flowers brightened my day. I saw a Bald Eagle just last week. I too noticed that one day the turkey vultures were here soaring overhead and the next they were gone.

  12. Amazing flora! I'd kill for a comfrey plant that looks that good. We have clay soil, if you can call it soil. Thank you for sharing!
