Garden bloggers’ Bloom Day – December 2014

If you look hard enough there are still quite a number of blooms blooming in the garden. Some, including the geranium above, more unexpected than others.

I certainly wouldn’t have expected this number of roses in December, but they are the exceptions –IMG_5569IMG_5547IMG_5549

    I didn’t think to check out my overwintering succulents for flowers. I also have a few doses flowering but mine were a little too battered by recent wind and rain to bother photographing. It really doesn’t feel like winter does it.
