Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - December 2012

It's that time of the month again.
To show what's in bloom in the garden.


Pansy Colossal, purchased this autumn for next spring's display. They obviously didn't read the instructions on the pack.

Primrose, purchased a few years ago. Yes it's another one for the spring display.

Antirrhinum majus Madame Butterfly, purchased last spring for a summer display. I forgot to tell it which summer, so it didn't begin flowering until autumn, and is still producing blooms despite the recent frost and ice.

Lobelia erinus Superstar, purchased last spring, and flowering throughout the summer. Amazing that it is still in bloom after the severe frost.

Apart from the violas, that I have regularly featured recently, that is all that is in bloom today. Last week's weather has really sent the garden to sleep.

If you want to see what is in bloom around the world today, please visit May Dreams Gardens where Carol is hosting this meme. Thanks Carol.

  1. All lovely and colourful Crystal. I do like the antirrhinum, it's really pretty! I don't think I've ever seen that sort before.

    I also enjoyed your previous post. So nice to have LTTs visit the garden, the fairies of the bird world I always think :-)

    1. The Antirrhinums were so late that they've hardly had time to put on a show. I'm hoping they survive the winter and put on a decent spring display.

  4. I love pansies and lobelias for their fun colours and gaiety. Its a pity that we cant plant them here, otherwise I'll go gaga over them.
