It's December...can you believe it?
This month always seems to creep up on me before I know it. I may not be expecting it, but my plants are always tuned in to the changing seasons.
For instance, the poinsettia in the garden is right on time...displaying red for the holiday season.
And, the aptly-named Matchstick bromeliad is right on time, too. I love the fluorescent purple and blue color.
Paired up with impatiens in the same color...it's a good match...no pun intended. :-)
Another bromeliad in similar colors is also right on time. My mother calls this the Christmas bromeliad...because it always blooms around Christmas time. Sorry I don't know the name of it...I should because Steve from Rainforest Gardener...identified it last year for me. Sorry Steve! Perhaps you will be so kind as to I.D. it again for me. It is a real beauty!
I'm sure glad my plants don't rely on me to remind them when to bloom.
As life gets busy this month with all its added demands...don't forget to see what's blooming in your garden.
