It is time for me to join Carol again over at May Dreams Gardens for a monthly view of what is blooming in the garden.
A new bloom this month is the Oxalis Iron Cross. These were some free bulbs that I got along with my fall bulb purchase. The dainty pink flowers are very charming.
The pansies are a cold-weather performer. I haven't had to protect these guys from any of our mild freezes, nor have I needed to provide them any supplemental water. They do well with the misting precipitation that we get every few days.
Pansies always make me think of Alice in Wonderland.
The purple trailing lantana is helping to provide nectar to the few remaining butterflies that have stuck around for the Texas winter.
The hot pink of the autumn sage brings a pop of color to the front beds.
The vitex is looking pretty bare these days, but there are still some blooms hanging on.
Thanks for joining me for my December blooms. Be sure to check out other gardeners' blooms over at May Dreams Gardens.
