Noelle at  hosts our monthly bouquet group. Are there any brave souls out there in the cold, bleak winter searching for those last flowers to assort and display? Go visit and see. :0)
                Not exactly Christmas colors, but Tradescantia doesn't come in red. If it does, send me some!
                                    Ah, that's better!  Mexican Firespike with variegated Alstroemeria. I did this for the November bouquet and it was such a hit with my wife, I did it for this month as well.
         After a year of regrowing from last Winter's freeze, the Brugmansia finally blooms just in time for the Holdiays.  Talk about patience...a whole year of waiting for this one bloom. That's 2 1/2 bouquets for this time around. The Brugmansia  hardly counts, but I think it's pretty.  Thanks for visiting. David :0)


  1. I love the brugmansia....great plant. Our frost killed the leaves ones are forming again. If we have another frost, I have decided that I will bring it inside. It had some nice blooms on it.

  2. May your home be blessed with the joys of the season, gardening friend. All your flower arrangements are simply gorgeous- whether or not they are red.

  3. Hi,
    Your bouquet is beautiful..and so is your wife's pineapple upside down cake :) I so enjoy looking at the way people in different climates make up a bouquet each month. There weren't many entries this month...everyone is so busy. Wishing you a Happy Gardening New Year. Balisha
