May Dreams Gardens has, for almost three years, been inviting garden bloggers to join her in listing the blooms they have in their garden on the 15th of each month. Visit her to find links to Bloom Day posts from around the world!
This time of year the pressure is on for those of us living in climates where we can still find blooms so here goes.
Let's start with what gardeners in colder climates might be AMAZED to see...Hemerocallis Teatime blooming just in time for December Bloom Day! I must, however, tell the truth and admit I'm amazed as well. It seems every year I have some confused plant blooming out of turn. Today, it's Teatime's turn to shine. Joining in is this sweet foxglove that just won't quit.
Rosa Flower Girl
Abutilon Pink Parasol
