.............during the holidays, while I was so busy inside and with special activities to participate in, the garden was carrying on without me. I did manage to get some pictures out there and that is what I am sharing today..........
Cooler weather is great for the roses and most of my bushes have been performing with wonderful blossoms
I love to take pictures when plants are covered with raindrops. We are still getting what seems to me more rain than normal in our "dry" season.
This night jasmine is in the back corner of the yard and is not seen much from the house so I was surprised when I walked back there and it was covered with blooms.
Nearby, something is going on with this pair, a boy and a girl tall garden stakes. They have been close but with about a foot between them. I notice now they are holding hands?????
In my raised bed the winter herbs are doing good. Love seeing dill covered with moisture.
Turnip plants all insisting on having the turnips above ground!
I was thrilled to finally catch this Gulf Fritillary sitting still enough to get a picture.
Monarchs are much easier to photograph. They don't all migrate from here.
This tropical has been loaded with blooms for weeks. It will be the first to go if we get a big frost or (I don't even like saying the word) a freeze.
Hibiscus has a few blooms almost year round.
After Christmas I found the snapdragons I had been looking for. They do well in the front sunny yard.
Geraniums do better in the winter time for me.
I have many more recent pictures but they can wait until the next garden post. Next posting will be from the inside showing some after Christmas decoration - my winter inside.
