Iris, ‘Rosalie Figge’ and Friends

December 25, 2015 Christmas tree 019

We have an Iris blooming in the garden today.  It stood up to heavy rain yesterday, and there are more buds to open over the next few days.

Our Prostrate Rosemary bloomed for Christmas day, too.  It is the first time this plant has bloomed for us, and we love its soft blue blossoms.

The Violas and ornamental cabbages are still vibrant,  loving these moist warm days.

The Vinca must think it’s already spring.  Tiny blue flowers are opening all over the garden.

And the first of the Hellebores buds have begun to appear.  These may be true winter flowers, but have debuted weeks earlier than last year.

Things have slowed down slightly from the few bits of cool weather we’ve had in December, but our garden continues its unfolding.

“Today expect something good to happen to you

no matter what occurred yesterday.

Realize the past no longer holds you captive.

It can only continue to hurt you

if you hold on to it.

Let the past go.

A simply abundant world awaits.”
