It's November in the Cheesehead Garden. Within the past week we were hit with our first hard frost, which is actually late for Wisconsin. So what does the garden look like? Much of my hostas are yellow and brown, laying on the ground like sad versions of their old self.
The mums are still looking good in the garden. In the background is also Eupatorium Rugosum 'Chocolate' or Chocolate Joe Pye Weed. It's a late bloomer and usually stays in bloom 'til the first snow fall. My fall crocus are also in bloom right now.
Looking at these pictures reminds me of all the work I should be getting done in the garden before the snow starts falling here in Wisconsin. So what does your garden look like this time of the year?
