It's January Bloom Day. If you don't know what that is, it's where garden blogger's around the world post what is blooming on a the 15th of each month and post them on May Dreams Gardens. If you live in the US I suspect that my garden is similar to many. With record lows, and an acute lapse of laziness...may garden is asleep. Ignore the date below, since I have changed the battery. Most of my personal flowers were in the greenhouse. If you think that is cheating, I wouldn't blame you.

More begonias save from the brink of extinction (at least in my gardens)
This bloom has been here forever. Baldo Villegas rose.
The bougainvilleas always seem to fare better in the greenhouse than outside. I don't think I water them enough.
The greenhouse is messy but I am sure the plants appreciate the shelter from the very cold spell we have had lately.
In an attempt to see what flowers were growing in the ground, I went next to the museum where I volunteered (and was recently put on the board).
The museum has tons of camellias and azaleas so I felt certain I would see some. I did, but not as many as I expected.
Back on the home front, my holly's are showing red berries.
Rose garden has not gone completely dormant but it is asleep.
The only thing that seems to have a flower on it is the weeds.
But I do have tons of camellias planted and they are budding to welcome in the spring.
