“Confusion”, a copyrighted post, was written for my WordPress blog called Always Growing by Jan in Covington, Louisiana
After several weeks of cold weather, we have warmed up to 80 degrees today. It feels like September, not late November. But, this is not unusual for the Deep South. It is common to have the temperature go up and down during the fall and winter. This sometimes makes for a confused garden.
The impatiens, a tender perennial here, is still blooming.
Nearby the impatiens is a dwarf Bufford holly bush with berries that are just about completely red.
Sometimes, it can be a little disconcerting to see tropicals or tender plants blooming next to the more hardy winter plants. But, that is what I like about living and gardening in the South.
