Even though it’s now December, there are still plenty of plants flowering in our garden. On 1st December, the following were in bloom:

And the laurel hedge was flowering at one end (nearest the house).

Now, I’m not an expert on such matters, but by my reckoning only the jasmine and the fatsia, and maybe the cyclamen, should actually be in flower in December …
