November’s GBBD it seemed like spring, there is no deluding myself now. With the change of month from November to December came, too, the change to winter. There has been frost on the ground almost every morning since the 1st of December. Maybe the coldest December since we bought this house and I began the garden.
The few rose blooms that remain seem almost petrified by the cold.
No more Californian poppies defying the month to flower with their sunny faces. Iris unguicularis has produced lots of flowers, usually only one at any one time, so not a profusion of colour but beautifully elegant never the less.
The beauty in the garden this month is mainly from seed-heads and foliage, I’ll be posting about what foliage is looking good on the 22nd.
Thanks to Carol at May Dreams (I’m dreaming of May too now) for hosting this opportunity to link with gardeners everywhere to see what’s blooming now around the world. It’s summer in the southern Hemisphere so we can enjoy some sunshine and warmth by sharing their walks around their gardens.
