2013 Solstice Countdown . . . 3!

hummingbird flower, Epilobium canum latifolium (formerly Zauschneria californica latifolia) & friend
Those of us  who are avid gardeners 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 2013.  Enjoy!

I'm still going with Zauschneria over Epilobium, plus the taxonomists change their minds whenever:-) A favorite I must use more...loves it down here.

Hoping to warm up past Denver today...sounds odd, but true sometimes in the winter!

Thanks David, I'm not sure I'm ready to give up on Zauschneria just yet!!
Whatever its name, I'm a fan.
