November yard

No interesting bugs this week. I looked and looked. They are all hiding from me. Just some random pictures from my backyard today.

These orange flowers are still hanging in there. I thought that they had finished blooming, but we've had a stretch of warm weather lately (high 80's) and they are bursting with new flowers.

I know this is blurry, but I like it.

Rosemary! I just discovered that we have a HUGE rosemary bush in our backyard. We've lived here for over 2 years and I never knew that. It is in the corner and I've never had any reason to go over to that corner. But when I did, I smelled something familiar that I couldn't quite identify. It took me a while to figure out what it was. Rosemary!

Some rosemary information from this website:
Rosemary is royal in stature. It stimulates sensitivity, increases creativity by lifting exhaustion, and philosophically awakens the heart. The Rosemary plant spills forth its fragrance in the midday sun. The aroma enables the human spirit to clear the mind and open blocked passages in the body allowing it to tap into the universal mind to receive and understand the assistance being sent forth from wiser beings. This brings the human spirit inner peace and contentment allowing us to remember who we are and perform the tasks needed on our spiritual path and assist others if we are asked.
Jeez....I wasn't planning to "tap into the universal mind" or anything. I thought I'd just try to cook with it.

Great pics. Nice treat, great way to end the weekend. Thanks for sharing.
The rosemary is really exciting. Definitly deserves the ! mark.
As much as you balk at it, you realize this rosemary plant description is exactly what you need? Don't mock it, just inhale and tap into the universal mind, dude....

I had to come back and look at these pics again. I can't believe that blue blooming plant. I have the same one. Got one for me and one for my aunt on mother's day. But you just have it growing naturaly in your yard???
I brought mine insdie for the winter hoping it might make it, but it's looking pretty bad.
I forget the name, but I have the tag downstairs. Lucky you. I love the blooms and the color.
