More December Ramblings

A hodge podge of pics from around the yard
this last week before Christmas...  


Bon fire - Perfect on a very grey December day...


The Herb Bed is still bright and colourful - Thyme, Sage, Oregano, Parsley, Rosemary, Marjoram... and Dianthus going strong. Herbaceous herbs, like chives, have died down for the winter months.


  
 Oops... I added the spring pea vines to this raised bed
as they are such a good soil amendment.
Not wanting to waste any lovely compost-ables...  
Seems there were some old pea pods still clinging to the vines
as I now have a lovely crop of peas coming up :)


Heirloom Italian Flat leaf Parsley is still lush and beautiful.

   In the greenhouse
One wants in, the other wants out.


Loving this purple Heather.


This variegated Osmanthus - False Holly, is super pretty any time of year
but seems most appropriate during the holidays. 

Love the contrast between the Golden Cypress
and Dwarf Globe Blue Spruce
