Welcome to Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day, December 15, 2010, the highly popular blog meme hosted at May Dreams Gardens where Carol shares photos and commentary on the current blooms in her gardens and asks others to do the same.
For this month’s GBBD I’m looking back at what was in bloom, and if not for today’s ever present arctic wind I’d have photos of astilbe, hydrangea, and echinacea seed heads to share, but brrrrr it’s cold outside!
What is in bloom? Not much.
While enjoying what is, I can also look into the future as promised by this swelling amaryllis bud. Maybe it will show off for January’s Bloom Day?
Now, as my zone 6a gardens in south-central Connecticut continue to shiver in December’s cold and await their first decent blanket of snow – only dustings so far – I’ll visit May Dreams Gardens to feast my eyes on the bursts of blooming color shared by gardeners fortunate enough to be greenhouse growers or living in more bloom-friendly warm-weather zones. Care to join me there?
