>I was in bed yesterday nursing what I feared might be strep throat, so I missed the posting for January Bloom Day. But I thought I would just post a bit late (good news, throat is on the mend!).
My new beds are finally planted (although I have yet to reveal them in a post). One of the plants in the bed off my patio is a dwarf pomegranate. It’s little waxy flowers are so bright and cheerful on a gray day like today.
My yellow rose is taking a break but a tiny white climber that I brought from my old house is loving the cold weather.
Interesting that the exact same bush has this flower, a bit pinker in its infancy
My camellia bush continues to open blooms one after another, just lining up to show their itty bitty pink faces
And dang, if I can’t get a crystal clear photo of these blooms. This one was just gorgeous light pink with a hint of yellow. I’ll try again tomorrow
The Mutabilis rose is the only one blooming right now but it has about 6 flowers right now and a few more buds, of course all in different colors ranging from light pink to yellow. This color change is the trademark of the Mutabilis rose.
In the vegetable garden, I have lettuces and chards growing. But the peas are the bloomers right now.
Climbing their livestock panel trellis, they are sending out blooms which quickly turn into peas.
I question whether I will have enough to actually serve in a meal, but even if not, they are fun to munch straight from the vine.
The weather will turn colder end of this week, temps down below freezing at night for a few nights. We have been in the 60s and 70s during the day, but our next few days will be 40s and 50s.
