Last year, Cathy of Words and Herbs launched a celebration of flowers to brighten the gray days that characterize December for many gardeners in the Northern Hemisphere. She invites garden bloggers to post one or two photos each day, or as opportunities arise, over the course of a week. I missed Day 1 on December 1st but I'm joining in today and will do so at least once more between now and December 7th. You can find Cathy's description of A Week of Flowers here.
I must start by admitting that winter is not all that bleak where I live in coastal Southern California. Still, flowers are far less plentiful even here at this time of year and it's nice to remember that spring is just around the corner.
My Anemone bulbs have already sprouted foliage and I'm already looking forward to their early spring show. Here's a sample of what they looked like back in February of this year.
