2012 Solstice Countdown . . . 8!

Bergenia cordifolia

Those of us  who are avid gardeners and living in the Northern Hemisphere can't wait for the winter solstice, the shortest day of the year. Then the days will begin to lengthen and we can look forward to the gardening season once again. Whoo-hoo!  This year the solstice occurs on December 21st, and to celebrate I'm posting a photo-a-day countdown with some of my favorite photographs of 2012.  Enjoy!

Reminds me that I should look at plants more closely than I do. Beautiful!

Yes, sometimes it takes a bit of crawling around on the ground to get eye-to-eye with a plant, but it's usually worth the effort!
