Nevertheless, a tour with the camera proved to me that there is quite a bit actually in bloom presently. The Central Bed is dominated by Autumn Sages at the top and Gaura at the bottom.
Salvia greggii "Flame" is still quite floriferous...
this week's vase, is loaded with dark red flowers
In the barely begun North Border, my plain red geranium is also loaded with buds but waiting to open them, while lovely Hamelia patens has quit blooming in favour of ripening its few berries.
So that is a fair tally of the garden in December. There is a good deal more blooming here than there was at this time last year; but somehow I am much more conscious of everything that needs to be done, than I am of what has already been accomplished. A nursery trip is planned for tomorrow...!
This overview of bloom in the garden is linked to the Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day with Carol at May Dreams Gardens - a useful way to keep track of progress.
