Winter Flowers for Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day

Mahonia
Forsythia

It is Garden Blogger's Bloom Day again! On the 15th of each month, we gardeners with blogs share a few bloom photos from our gardens.

Here on the Mid-Atlantic USA (USDA zone 7) on the DC-MD border, the mild fall and December are long gone and winter has set in. No real snow yet, but my pond waterfall has iced over on a few nights and that has been enough to kill all the summer annuals and fall boomers that were hanging on until almost Christmas.

Blooming in my garden today are: Mahonia, Winter Jasmine, Hellebore, Heather, and a few premature Forsythia blossoms. Snowdrops should be coming soon as well as the early Daffodils.

What is blooming in your garden today?

Nothing blooming outdoors, here in upstate New York, but for the first GBBD ever, I had outdoor blooms in December. What a strange winter we've had. Not that I'm complaining....

Thanks for stopping by on Bloom Day, Lea and Alana.
And yes, a strange winter, but no complaints here - we deserve a break after the last 2!
