November's Calendar - A Lavendar View

November is a great flower month.  We don't usually think of it that way.  We think of November as when things really die in the garden, when the leaves are completely gone, and the weather gets cold.  It's November 1st today and it sure met these criteria.  There was hard frost over night, and every annual is done and gone.  

We have to go to where the flowers are in November - that's mostly public greenhouses and conservatories where there is a chrysanthemum festival this time of year.  Last year, I found out the Longwood Gardens has a spectacular display.  So this month's Calendar image is a scene from Longwood Gardens last year.
