In Which Unexpected Helpers Volunteer

Right about now, we could all use an unexpected helper.

This coleus, in situ on my front porch since September, has appreciated neither winter nor lack of water. However, you will also see above that Yellow Ranunculus has entered, cape flying.

Returning, unexpected, left over from a planting last spring. Happy Thanksgiving everyone, and special kudos to all you volunteers.

Other, more intentional seasonal plantings, here. All on my front porch, over the years.

  1. Your Yellow Ranunculus (I had to copy and paste since I know nothing about plants!) is beautiful. Wishing you and your family a wonderful holiday Lisa!!

  2. I’ve loved this use of the word “volunteer” since my grandmother used to speak of such helpers back in my childhood. Such a wonderful personification.

  3. Happy Thanksgiving to you too!

    At least one of my yellow pear tomatoes that dropped on the ground during the summer has seeded, and I now have a smallish tomato plant trying to make a late autumn go of it. Hang In There, Little Tomato!

  4. What a felicitous combination of colors–bright yellow tingeing into green, and contrasting with the deep violet-blue. At the end of November, yet!

  5. Wishing you Happy Day After Thanksgiving as yesterday was too busy to visit blogs. Ranunculus is second only to Peonies in my personal flower love hierarchy. Hope yesterday was joyful for you and your loved ones.
