December Stroll...

December is here, its a beautiful sunny day.  Let's see what's blooming...
The Pink Jasmine covering the arbor over the gate to the back, back part doesn't look that interesting yet.  I can see what I think is itty bitty flower buds starting to form.  It will be a sight in spring, govered in white flowers and pink buds.
mmmmmm not to mention the smell.  The fragrance of Jasmine is absolutely delightful.  Really need to get a larger structure there to let it ramble along. 

Salvia Greggii, Majestic sage and Lemons, frame a hidden path, while the yellow/orange bulbine nicely interacts with Mexian Bush Sage. 
I think if I could only choose flowers from one genous, it would be Salvia.  There are so many diffener varieties, blooms practically year round, and is relative pest free.   A sunny border, flanked by an Agave in a container, Paperwhites, Zinnias, Dianthus and Ornamental Pepper.
