Flowers in December

With the unusually lovely and mild temperatures during most of December, the garden has remained in a state of suspended animation. The mums are still blooming, the rose that flowered in a pot has not lost the petals and looks like it did several weeks ago. The rose buds on the rose bush continue to bloom! The very hearty ivy continues to climb along the fence. We actually could have just sat out on the porch today. This is one of the main reasons we moved away from the snow and ice of Wisconsin. The last few winters here have been very cold with more snow than I can remember - there was two feet of it and a week off from work two years ago! So this is really a treat and a great way to start off the new year.
The rosebuds and the ivy are thriving

This little rose has lasted weeks

And the mums think it is Fall although they look very "Christmassy"
