We woke to about half an inch of snow. It was not a surprise as the weatherman had forewarned us but you never know when the weather will decide to do something other than what they predict.
I decided to take a cruise of my garden with camera in hand to see what may be blooming on this 15th day of December. The 32 degrees felt nearly balmy compared to the past few days that started around 26 degrees.
A snowy viola I have growing in a barrel on my back deck.
This is a Heritage rose from David Austin English roses..it has been a tough one. Roses blooming here in the Northern California Sierra Nevada mountains is unheard of this time of year, usually.
It resides beside my studio.
Its brother hovers at its feet, but the roses on this one are more desiccated though still rather lovely.
There are more things blooming in my Greenhouse. Some pelargoniums..
A Cappuccino Rudbeckia
A volunteer white petunia that came up in a pot with some boxwood.
And here are my ladies at breakfast.
I hope you enjoyed my little morning walk..
I am going to join Bloom Day over at May Dreams Garden
