One of the things I love the most about living here is the quantity of flowers – sometimes year round, like the fresh picked camellias we have on the Christmas table – this year we had Aunt Alice in bloom for Christmas! The pink is Debutante and variegated is Peppermint. OK, so they don’t look so great with the pink of the poinsettia, but I guess it proves the season!
Here are some shots of the garden today – or I should say, the some of the
bigger plants… the ground level has lots of different color violets, a few
hundred Lily of the Valley scattered about, and even many of the weeds have
sweet little flowers on them. I just had to include Red Emperor flowers that
blew off in one of our wind storms and landed on the mossy ground. I thought it
looked so cool… too pretty to walk on… I had to step over them.
