|Viola blooming in the winter lawn.|
After all, when Mother Nature presents us with a spring-like December day when she could present us with day that is quite wintry, it seems impolite and ungrateful not to go out to the garden for some extra gardening time.
I went out to my garden and found a viola blooming in the lawn. I love to see these little flowers in my lawn and have some plans to try to get more of them to naturalize in the lawn next year. Stay tuned.
I was reminded that this is the early Christmas season when I saw the red and green of this geranium foliage.

Out in the backyard, I noticed how convenient it is for this rogue plant to still have green leaves on it.

Out in the Vegetable Garden Cathedral, I put some chicken-wire fencing around the newly planted dwarf apple trees to keep the rabbits from gnawing on them this winter.

On a spring-like December day, I also did some more weeding. The weeding never ends. I don't ever expect it to end. If you know how to put an end to weeding once and for all, you could make a lot of money selling your method to people like me who feel like they are constantly weeding, or if not constantly weeding at least staring at the weeds wondering why there are so many of them.
Or maybe the answer is in my new-to-me book?

Don't forget to celebrate all things fertilizer on International Fertilizer Day - 12-12-12. It only comes along once every 100 years.
