December in the Northern Hemisphere
« on: December 22, 2023, 12:01:50 AM »
Here I am starting the December thread just when the month is about to end :)
We've been having such a mild one that it was hard to believe the holidays are approaching. Instead of snow it's been raining, not a great weather for the rockery plants.

And it is time to wish all forumists a wonderful Christmas time and many beautiful plants and gardens in 2024!

Gabriela,

Merry Christmas, and best wishes for the new year to you too.

I am really pleased with the mild winter.  I am trying to grow a few things that are marginally hardy; and the mild winter will allow them to mature and gain strength before their limits are tested.

How wonderful to have a weather in December like in the first picture, almost like spring with even sun. :)
Rain is not so good, and I hope your plants still know that winter is coming, and all is well when real spring comes. :)
