Still Blooming After All These Months

Still blooming as we approach December: red Parade mini-rose and seed-grown sweet alyssum.

(Sorry for the blurry photo. I need to read up on my camera’s macro function.)

Still a beautiful sight at the end of November. I also have trouble with focus on close ups.

There is alyssum still blooming in a few yards down the street, too! Did you WS yours, Kasmira? I've got a packet to WS myself, and was wondering whether there were any tricks you cared to share...

Blackswamp - I sorta wintersowed sweet alyssum. I sowed it in March. The pictured plant was actually direct sowed. Sweet alyssum is REALLY easy. It just needs light and water to germinate. I plan on using it as living mulch in entire my rose garden next year. Here is a picture of the wintersown plants in my rose garden from this year.

Now you've got me all excited about winter soltice. My friend wants to have a winter soltice party. Maybe I should start bugging her about it. We could sow seeds!
