It's amazing what blooms sometimes when it's cold, isn't it? Some flowers only bloom when the temperature drops, of course, but there's still something exciting about seeing a gorgeous new bloom when the rest of the world seems to be freezing.
This beautiful plant is climbing all over a trellis in our back yard, blooming its little heart out. Can anyone tell me what it is? It's clearly been here awhile, long before we moved in this past summer, but I can't say I've ever seen a plant quite like it. Whatever it may be, it's glorious.
I hope all of you enjoyed a wonderful holiday season. Here's to a fabulous 2012, full of beauty, celebrations and love...
