Today we received our first Christmas cards and the neighbourhood is starting to light up with colourful display’s of the season. Then there is the garden which appears a tad confused so I took some photos today to show what I mean.
It’s harder to know what season it is these days and I don’t think it’s a matter of me getting older. I mean, Christmas appeared in some stores in October even though there was a time you could count on some sort of semi dignified restraint until after Halloween.
And then there are the flowers that either hang in there or in the case of the two below decide that December would be a good time to bloom!
Of course the weather has some accountability for all this since we’ve gone from well below zero to plus 11 over the past few weeks so no wonder the flowers are confused about the seasons too. No lectures from me about consumerism or climate change but ask any gardener if things are a bit odd out there!
