December flowers

This month I'm making the most of the early summer stunners. The peony that I grew from a tuber dug from Mum's garden has finally flowered! It was in bud forever, at least 2 months I would say. Then suddenly the flowers opened, and in a few short days they were finished. They still did better than my shop-bought tuber, which put out some lovely leaves but no flower buds. 

Some late aquilegia are still blooming. And the miniature gladioli have burst into colour. I like the compact size of these little plants, the colours are so vivid that I wouldn't want them any bigger.

As the weather warms up, every day I go outside and something else is blooming. I love this time of year so much. Summer days forever!

As usual I'm linking up to Garden Blogger's Bloom Day.


  1. Lovely summer flowers! Once a peony finally gets settled, it rewards you. Happy Bloom Day.

    1. They take their sweet time though! Luckily it's worth it in the end.

  2. I am happy to experience your summer as my fall turns to winter. Luscious.

  3. Thank you for brightening my brisk fall afternoon with your beautiful bouquet. Your blooms are beautiful.

  4. Those are beautiful! I have been busy this did I miss this beautiful post. Those flowers are amazing!!!!! Robbie:-)
