Despite the many miles between our gardens, mine in Perthshire Scotland and Carol’s in Indiana USA, today we both have flower buds on a Christmas rose! What fun it is to compare our gardens to other gardens around the world on the 15th of the month and Carol at May Dreams Gardens is the blogger and hostess behind it all.
The reality is, had I not read Carol’s November 2013 blog post for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day and seen her photo I wouldn’t have realised my Christmas rose even had a bud. Out in my garden I was to I move fallen leaves to discover a flower bud hiding below. I didn’t think I had anything to contribute this month however my camera kept finding more that I wanted to capture before possible snowfall at the end of next week. Oh dear… there is much to finish outside before then!
I’ll rush you through my small garden so you have time to browse all the many blooming gardens around the world. I wonder if other gardens will have the same blooms. Have fun… HAPPY GARDEN BLOGGERS’ BLOOM DAY everyone :-)
Wishing you all a great weekend. Last weekend's garden to-do of building a wildlife home is still on my list! Other stuff happened. Nice stuff, first car shopping with daughter! Lots of garden stuff to do before the snows - a busy week ahead. What garden to-do's are on your list before our gardens get caught in Winter's grip?
