What’s blooming now

Here it is almost the middle of December, and it’s very warm and humid down here in s.e. FL. It doesn’t feel like Christmas at all.

My gardens were neglected the past 4 months, but things have a way of surviving and that makes me thankful.

Garlic vine flowers. These are just about all gone now. They were a wonderful showing while they lasted. I like how they fade out in color.
