January: Garden Bloggers’ Bloom Day
January 16th, 2009
Dateline: Thousand Oaks, California
Well, I’m one-day late, but that’s because I spent most of January 15th sitting on an airplane.
So I’m back in Southern California – and hurrah! It’s supposed to be 80 degrees outdoors today. Early this morning, I snuck out to see what my garden has to share with you. Four new blooms, intentionally selected to show you something different from my December blooms. All of these came into my possession from the prior owners of our home, which we bought in August 2006.
A beautiful, mature Aloe – about to bloom
A sprawling Pelargonium – planted as a ground cover
Rosemary – blue blooms to blanket my hillside
Silvery lavender foliage offsets a rare late bloom
Happy New Year to each of you, and may the garden feed your heart, health and soul!
Inspired by the words of Elizabeth Lawrence, “We can have flowers nearly every month of the year,” Carol of May Dreams Gardens started Garden Bloggers Bloom Day. On the 15th of every month, garden bloggers from all over the world publish what is currently blooming in their gardens, and leave a link in Mr. Linky and the comments of May Dreams Gardens.
