Oh yes--it is great to have an extra hour but we did so much yardwork on this gorgeous November day that we are too exhausted to enjoy the extra hour. And I am still picking flowers for the house---this is my new favorite flower, Everlasting Summer Hydrangea. It starts out in early summer with Periwinkle blooms(thanks to soil ammendments or otherwise it would be a pretty pink) and then in late Autumn it puts forth varigated blooms from seafoam green with shades of plum. But their appeal doesn't stop there---I put them in water and they last for a long time and then dry retaining the gorgeous shades and look great all winter long!
