Christmas in the Garden?

Well, as always in North Carolina around this time of year, my garden is confused.

Is it already spring?  My daffodils seem to think so.

Is it still fall?  Many of those flowers are still blooming away, despite the fact that it is officially winter.

Is winter actually coming?  Some of my Gaillardia are finally starting to look affected by the chill.

However, I'm quite sure that the blooms of my Sweet Alyssum is all the white my garden is going to see on the ground this Christmas holiday.

Well, no matter what season my garden thinks it is in, it is time for a holiday break for this gardener.  I will be away from my blog for a couple weeks spending time with family and friends.  I wish you and your families a safe and merry Christmas season and a blessed New Year!

Yes, even you squirrels..
(though maybe not the voles)


  1. I wish you, your family and the squirrels a happy holiday season. Maybe a few extra nuts for the squirrels. Daffs already, wow. Not here yet.

  2. Wishing you and your family a very merry Christmas filled with fond memories and hopefully not too much vole damage! I found a Shasta Daisy blooming in my garden today...but I'm keeping my mouth shut. I may regret what I wish for :O)

  3. We can send you some snow if you would like.

    Merry Christmas!


  4. Some of my bulbs were fooled too as were the trees and shrubs...Merry Christmas and a very Happy New Year even to the voles!!

  5. Merry Christmas to you and your family! I'm like the daffodils - I want it to be spring, too! :)

  6. Merry Christmas, Red! I had to laugh at your garden being confused. Love the humor.

  7. My garden is just as confused as yours, over here in London - I have daffodils, irises, crocuses, snowdrops and even tulips on their way up! And my fuchsias are still flowering... Hope you have a nice Christmas holiday, all the best for 2013, lets hope for an early, warm, nice spring for us all :-)

  8. That's one laid back critter. I'll keep my eye on him while you're away, make sure he doesn't move off that slide!
    Happy New Year xx
