Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day December 2014

Northeast Mississippi, US, zone 7

I really cannot believe that my December Bloom Day post is about a weed - a WEED!
But you have to go with what you have, don't you?
Actually Goldenrod is an important native wildflower much loved by bees and other insects.
I apologize for calling it a weed.
I don't think I've ever seen Goldenrod bloom this late in the year.  We've had temperatures well below freezing at night, but it has survived in a sunny spot on the south side of the house protected from the cold north wind. All the other Goldenrods I have are just brown stems with dry fuzzy seedheads.

Happy Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day!

Happy Sky Watch Friday!

Shooting into the Sun, December 5, 2014

Lake at Ballard Park, Tupelo, MS, USA, November 30, 2014
For many photos it is best to have the sun at your back. However, you should face the sun to best catch the light glistening off the water.  But you already knew that, didn't you?  Before I retired I worked at a college, so sometimes I fall back into tutoring mode. (This is straight out of the camera - Canon PowerShot G9).

Happy Sky Watch Friday!

And have a wonderful week-end!

ABC Wednesday and Outdoor Wednesday, December 3, 2014

ABC Wednesday
U is for Unusual

Spirea, November 28, 2014
 
Spirea usually blooms in the spring, but this year there are a few Autumn blooms -
very Unusual!

Outdoor Wednesday
November 30, 2014
This small lake is at Ballard Park in Tupelo, MS, USA. Attached to the far side of the footbridge is "Happy Holidays" to be viewed from across the lake.  It is just one of many Christmas decorations throughout the park that are lit up at night.  This year November saved its best day until last.  The 30th was a mild, sunny day - temps reached 75F (about 24C)!

Have a wonderful Wednesday!
