It's December 15 and I have this bloom--not totally unharmed by the recent hard freeze, but still looking very lovely.
Austin, Golden Celebration. And there's two more buds behind this bloom. Maybe they'll come out before Christmas. If the weather turns colder, then those two buds might need to come indoors. It's very pretty to see at the front of the house.
Today I also won a lovely prize over at Oodles and oodles. I won a book that looks like an warm and interesting read and a goodie bag. Barbara has many lovely things in her shop and I enjoy perusing it at leisure. She has many lovely vintage items and she writes about her home and shopping adventures on her blog. Thank you, Barbara!
