Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day


One of the continued joys of being a novice gardener-

even though I have been devoting time and effort to my garden for about 4 years now-

is that I am constantly surprised by something blooming.

Every day really is a new day for me in

Zone 9 down in deep South Texas, with December temperatures in the high 80’s,

and the occasional drought thrown in.

Ignorance really can be bliss.

I may claim to be a novice gardener

for YEARS.


So imagine my surprise to find that in the

past week or so, things around my place seem relatively

happy and content.



you know what I am about to say…

I don’t know why.

But I’m grateful


pleased all wrapped into one.

Your flowers/plants are still so pretty for December.Love the arch with the blooming flowers over the walkway. I had originally planned to do some cleanup and tossing spent flowers in my courtyard this weekend, but it has been dark, dreary and rain off and on, so it will have to wait.
Have a great week.
