Wide Shot – November 2013

Wide shot November 2013

Wide Shot-October 2013

Wide Shot-September 2013

Please join me in posting a wide shot of your garden the first of every month, or anytime you get to it in the month.  It is my hope, that this exercise will assist us all both in the appreciation of our gardens as they grow and change, and in growing and learning ourselves to recognize changes we may want to make.



  1. Hi, like my garden yours is looking fuller with the cooler weather. I love the balance you’ve created and the sweeping curve that centers on your entrance. Here’s my post. http://myhesperidesgarden.wordpress.com/2013/11/01/the-long-view-november-1st/

    • Thanks Christina – funny….if I had it to do over, I always thought I would straighten out all my lines. Your silvers and whites are especially POPPING right now! -xericstyle

  2. Looking good over there Heather with all that purple xeric goodness. The cool and rainy weather has my garden at peak this time of year.


    • The rain sure has made a huge difference, hasn’t it!? Your views are looking fabulous this November!!!! -xericstyle

  3. Your front garden looks good, Heather – I love the purple/lavender tones! Here are my own wide shots: http://krispgarden.blogspot.com/2013/11/wide-shots-november-2013.html

    • Thanks Kris! You have several yourself! I also notice a lot of reds and gorgeous fall color…just lovely! -xericstyle

  4. 5/5 even without a low or colored garden wall, Heather X. Very nice. Though I don’t have a wide view of my own garden anymore, how about one of my projects or something from someone else I like? You know I have many wide views, being I’m such a generalist…

    • Yeeeeeees! Pretty please with sugar on top! – xericstyle

      • OK, will make it a point to participate!

      • It would mean so much, mentor! – xericstyle

  5. Heather I love the street border with the purple, and those grasses in front are divine. Really gorgeous for November. Thanks for hosting this meme.

    Here’s my shot:

    • Now YOU have some gorgeous color going on Donna! I want to jump into one of your photos! – xericstyle

  6. Maria

    Your pink Gulf Muhly grasses are doing great! I planted eight 3 gallon bunches and they all look mostly brown and dying. 1/2 are planted in the backyard getting regular water and 1/2 are planted streetside getting none and they all look bad. I think I’m going to trim them all and see what happens.

    • thx Maria:). I would not trim now…wait until spring if you must. I would recommend super thrive and/or seaweed and compost tea instead…..- xericstyle

  7. What a very pleasant landscape you have created. I would imagine most of the plants you have chosen look good for most of the year?

    • Thanks William! Actually…no. my evergreens are too weak in my opinion. It is my focus this upcoming year. Thanks for stopping in. – xericstyle
