Today finds Central Florida, sunless, wet and cool. Showers are expected throughout the day, temperatures in the low 50's. It would be a perfect day to binge-watch gardening shows on television, but no, they've all been replaced with drivel. Do you remember "A Gardener's Diary", hosted by Erica Glasener? My all time favorite, because she visited gardens of everyday people, across the U.S. When gardening shows were on the way out, they moved "A Gardener's Diary" to the ungodly hour of 6:00AM. During that time, I taped the show on my VCR, but alas, no more VCR. I need to round up my tapes and have them transferred to disc. So, my fellow bloggers, now I get my gardening 'fix' by visiting your gardens.
Blooms are still plentiful, as we've had no cold weather to speak of, but I'm just going to post a few new things. This bicycle planter was a Christmas gift from my daughter, along with other garden accessories. Before spring arrives, I have to decide what plants will adorn it.
Sasanqua Camellia, 'Yuletide'
Something I've never seen on my Night-blooming Jasmine, shiny, white berries...
A couple crazy things due to the warm weather, Caladiums popping up...
...and Lacecap Hydrangeas blooming.
In closing, photos from my garden, spring and summer, 2015...to brighten a dreary day.
I won't wish you 'happy gardening', but 'happy planning and dreaming' for next year's garden.
