The garden was a captivating place today. Some sights were seasonal, such as that of a bright red Camellia sasanqua ‘Yuletide’ and a golden Jackmanii clematis seedhead.
Seeing the Iberis Sempervirens blooming in the meditation circle at this time of year is unusual.
Spiraea in this garden often sends out an early blossom or two, but this year the timing is early by many weeks.
This Echinacea purpurea (Purple Coneflower) is not as showy as in summer but it has bloomed long past its expected timeframe.
The next few days will offer a less hospitable environment for some of these unseasonable bloomers, as a cold front pushes through the area bringing freezing temperatures.
