Since the idea of garden bloggers bloom day was born, thanks to Carol at May Dreams Gardens , my garden has been scoped out for likely vignettes on the fifteenth of each month. Now the scoping results can be viewed by others. It is a dream come true for sure. We all want to share the beauty, right? But why did I choose December to start blogging? Oh well, one just has to look a little harder for that lovely shot. Hope these are up to snuff.
Shown above, Heuchera ‘ Stormy Seas’
Variegated english ivy
Vinca minor ‘Illumination’
Oops, well this is a bloom of sorts, an artists’ rendition of a honeysuckle blossom
Russian Tea Olive, the blooms are tiny but pack a big wallop of fragrance. The name is Osmanthus Fragrans.
Cattleya orchid from my sun room/ greenhouse, more about that later
Salvia ‘May Night’
Salix Discolor. No unwanted links here. 😉 . Some may recognize this as a shrub that goes by the common name that ends in willow.
Euphorbia Dulcis ‘ Chameleon’ with ajuga and Dianthus ‘Little Boy Blue’.
That wraps up my very first bloom day blog. January may be a challenge to find anything but maybe it will just take a little imagination when out and about with camera in tow
