Winter garden

My parent’s garden is blooming all of the time with spring and summer being the most prolific.  I took these shots in the middle of December before the start of our current heat spell, which is finally coming to an end.  An unseasonably warm spell in the winter really confuses the plants.  We don’t have defined seasons here in sunny Southern California, but you can usually rely on your garden to tell what season it is.

My mother loves the older rose stock because they have more character and are simply charming.

I hope you enjoyed the tour!  It is a labor of love worth sharing and I will visit periodically throughout the year to share the beauty with all of you.
