Garden Bloggers Bloom Day - December 2009

A November freeze wiped out most blooming things outside, with the exception of some scrappy Mexican mint marigolds and sheltered purple lantana, neither of which photograph well right now. So, here's the best color around the house:

The rosemary's got a couple of flowers still on it; purple lantana; some kolanchoe which may bloom if we get a few warm days in a row; the Christmas cactus (again); and my neighbor's pear tree is looking beautiful today.
