December Bloom Day(s)-- frosty & foggy

Yes, this month's blooms were shot on 2 very different looking mornings: Dec. 14th (frosty) & Dec 16th (foggy). Taken all together, it appears as though it's still quite colorful out there, but there is a lot of space between those little colorful moments. A LOT of space. It seems to me as though it's been more consistently cold (yes, it's all relative!) than at this point in previous winters-- with frosty mornings being the rule.
from top:
1) camellia
2) scabiosa
3) yarrow
4) gaillardia
5) pelagorium
6) lavendar
7) primrose
8 & 9) frosty penstemon
10) helenium
11) frosty rose

Your photos are beautiful, frost and all! It is nice to see flowers, as we are buried in snow at the moment.
Merry Christmas to you and yours!

Beautiful assortment of flowers, Lisa! I especially love the camellia. I really wish we could grow them here (in the ground all year).

I like the frosty touches, too!

Yes, I guess 'cold' is a relative term. It seems you have a lot still blooming in your garden, in spite of the frost.

Thanks for joining us for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

Frosty and foggy it may be, but you still seem to have loads blooming. I love the camellia and the penstemons.

The camellia is beautiful and I love your next entry with the grasses. Gorgeous!
