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
