It's A Wonderful Time Of The Year! December GBBD
But, not necessarily a very bloomy one!
Welcome to Bloom Day December 2009 at C&L....There's still a bit of flowering color to be seen here and there in the hidden and protected micro-climates that make up this garden.
Tucked behind walls and beneath tall trees
A few plants bloom longer then others
We enjoy them while we can. Savoring each petal or the faded colors the frost leaves behind.
Frosty ice covered seedheads add their own beauty
drama and color to an otherwise brown garden.
These last of the colors are precious all the more for their brief time left in the garden.
Thank you for stopping by... For more Bloom Day posts then we can see in a day, pop over to May Dreams Gardens. Carol a prolific and talented writer/blogger and hostess extraordinaire created Bloom Day when she was inspired by Elizabeth Lawrence, who wrote, “We can have flowers nearly every month of the year.” The rest is Bloom Day history~~
Have a wonderful day and loads of fun out there~
and if you can, please imagine Andy Williams singing~~
It's the most wonderful time of the year.
With the kids jingle belling And everyone telling you "Be of good cheer"
It's the most wonderful time of the year
It's the hap-happiest season of all
With those holiday greetings and gay happy meetings
When friends come to call It's the hap- happiest season of all
