Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day: December 2008

What a difference a month makes. A warm November and a later-than-expected frost (for zone 6b) combined for some fabulous blooms. But now, the cold December weather has set in and almost all the blooms are gone. Alas, I was able to find at least a few to share with all of you.

One way I get through December is to think that it won't be long till spring. Your snowdrop is a good sign.

Yes,(what Jan said) and soon now, the days will start getting longer.

We had the same conditions here in SE Nebraska, where right now, it is 2 degrees, after a high Saturday in the upper 50s. Brr!

I like your pics and post.

Thanks for joining in for bloom day. I can't believe your forsythia has a little bloom on it!
