Christmas Garden Notes

The meditation circle is my favorite feature in the garden these days. The top and right-hand sides are planted with perennials I am testing out to see how well they perform through different seasons. The plants I am enjoying best are the five Iberis Sempervirens (Candytufts) that share the blue reflecting ball in the center and the two penstemons,  Penstemon digitalis ‘Husker Red’ (shown at position 10 o’clock).  This is how they appeared at 8:30 a.m. on this 32-degree frosty, sunny Christmas morning.

The evergreen candytuft is flowering in December, an unusual but welcome event.  Here are a few more scenes of this peaceful little garden at Christmastime.
