Each month, gardeners the world over celebrate the blooms in their gardens on the 15th. Two days late, I'm posting my meager offerings for December.

The one that made me smile however, was this lone Viola. It isn't even planted in the ground. For three years, it has resided in a hypertufa pot my mom made and for three years it has delighted us with its delicate blooms, even deep in December.
