DECEMBER'S FINAL CALL



December is the beginning of the end in my garden.  I've shredded all the fallen leaves and pine needles and applied them to all the beds.


The roadside wildflower garden continues to bloom despite some cold nights and lots of rain.

My mahonia , aka, Oregon grape is blooming.


I love its cheerful yellow blooms and artistic sculpture like structure.


On warm days I sit and enjoy what I have created.

On this last month of the year the garden still looks very much alive but I know that it can change in the blink of an eye.  Meanwhile I have cabbage, kale and mustard greens growing in my veggie garden.  My camellia japonica has buds on it and my flowering apricot will bloom sometime in February .  

While I tend to hang up the trowel this month there's always the possibility that this will be a mild winter.  One can only hope.

  1. We are expecting mid 70's by the end of the week. If this pattern continues, it does not bode well for the daffodils.
