A few photos from my Southeast Tennessee Garden in December.
As I walked around my garden last week taking photos, I noticed a few things that should definitely not be happening! In the above photo, you can see that my candytuft is blooming! I know that it does not usually bloom in December. I don't know what's going to happen when winter settles in again. It was crazy to think that on Christmas day we were outside in short sleeves!
My oakleaf hydrangea, one of my favorite shrubs for year round attractiveness, is continuing to hold onto it's deep red fall colors.
I know it's kind of hard to see in this photos, but my pussy willow is starting to get all fuzzy. Too soon!!
Speaking of year round performers, how about this nandina?! It's new growth is a bright orange-red and it's red berries are gorgeous.
Look at my irises!! It looks like spring, doesn't it? This is so troubling since I know we have about 3 more months of winter at least!
