As we close out this November, there is little left in the garden taking shape, form or color. But if you look hard and long enough, you can find something in its place. Today’s images are the faded sterile flowers of H. paniculata ‘Limelight’. Just in case you needed a refresher on this popular shrub, a few links from some past posts.
It’s never a wordless Wednesday for me; making a point about something as November fades into the limelight. There’s always the quote, which today must be words from Mark Twain. Just in case you didn’t see the Google Doodle, it’s the witty American author’s 176th birthday. With so many great Twain quotes to choose from, the most appropriate for this amazing shrub seemed to be... “Many a small thing has been made large by the right kind of advertising.”
Feel free to pick your favorite Twain quote and post it on any of the usual spots below. For all those cauliflower fans, you might like this one. “Cauliflower is nothing but cabbage with a college education.” Or you might just prefer Twain’s straight talk. “Go to Heaven for the climate, Hell for the company.” Have a great Wednesday and don’t let November fade into the limelight without remembering a special moment. Hopefully it’s one from your garden.
