Käes on pea novembri keskpaik, kuid ilm on ebatavaliselt soe. Lehed kirjutavad, et sel novembril on septembri ilm. Ja tõepoolest, öökülmi pole, sajab sageli ja temperatuurid on päeviti kaheksa ja kümne kanti. Kohalikud linnuvaatlejad räägivad veel äralendamata kuldnokkadest laulu vilistamas, ise märkasin mõnd rästast. Just kui vanal heal Inglismaal, võiks nüüd minna aeda tulpe istutama, nagu soovitab "Gardener's World". Tõttöelda ootangi sealt veel üht hilist pakikest - hull aednik! Aga sellest pikemalt mõni järgmine kord.

It is nearly mid-November now and one could expect quite wintry weather by this time in Estonia. However, it has been, and still is, rather warm. Mild temperatures around +10 'C and frequent rains refer more to September or October than to November in this corner of the world. Also, not all migrant birds have left jet, starlings and blackbirds still can be heard and seen here and there. In England November is a best time for planting tulips . Here it would be a little late, but hopefully not this year. At least I hope so, as I'm waiting a little bulb pack from England.
Not all herbaceous plants have faded jet either. Horned pansies are flowering like in summer and some blooms of lawndaisies can be found in the grass. On the last picture there is a primrose I purchased last winter for indoor joy. It survived long winter in indoor environment with high temperatures and very low humidity but now is happily in garden and blooming nonstop from late summer.
November is named Winter Month in Estonia but no winter so far. I think we are lucky!
