Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day - December 2015

It being December, around here in New England most of the flowers are currently to be found indoors. Normally I would have bought some poinsettias and maybe forced some bulbs for the holidays, but since we will be traveling a lot in the coming weeks I decided to hold off on those. Even so, there are a few things blooming around the house:

Arabian jasmine (Jasminum sambac 'Maid of Orleans')

A pinkish white Christmas cactus (Schlumbergera truncata cv.)

A 'Bliss' perpetual carnation (Dianthus caryophyllus 'Bliss')...

... and one of the 'Cheshire Cat' variety

The trusty, reliable, ever-blooming crown-of-thorns (Euphorbia milii)

A delicate yellow mystery daisy - anyone know what this might be?

However, since much of fall and winter so far have been unseasonably mild, there are even still a few blooms outside in the garden:

A 'Resina' pot marigold (Calendula officinalis 'Resina'), freshly washed by the rain

Too see what is blooming at other people's places around the country and the globe, visit May Dreams Gardens.


  1. Yellow daisy - Euryops chrysanthemoides or possibly an Argyranthemum?

    1. Yes - Euryops chrysanthemoides looks right! Thank you!

  2. Your indoor blooms are just a good as others' outdoors blooms!

  3. Beautiful Christmas cactus with a soft color. I have had a plan on growing dianthus both of single and double petal, but our very wet weather makes we have to wait until the end of the rainy season. Yours looks so beautiful!


Thanks for stopping by!
