The December Garden

You know, over the years many Spaniards who have met me can't help but asking, "Is there anything you don't like about living in Spain?"  And, my response is always the same: "Yes, two things, actually: July and August!"  I mean, how could a white-as-a-sheet New Englander ever become accustomed to living in a climate with virtually no shade trees and 110+ ºF temperatures?  I even have to wear a hat swimming in the pool (not very Spanish, mind you)!

Nonetheless, living in a warmer climate with unbearable summers does have its advantages: milder winters and a longer growing season.  We even have roses in December!  These are a selection of flowers that are blooming in my garden right now:
