Pink flowers reaching for the sun

Late Season Blooms

The Charleston area daylight is down to 10 hours as we approach the last week until winter solstice, technically December 21, which I like to think of as “making the turn”.  The flowers still in bloom stretch to get what sun they can.

These pink ones, Gerber Daisies I think, were surprisingly robust with very little actual plant to support them.

Roses will form buds and flower throughout the winter here, although they often don’t make much of a showing as a blossom when the temperatures flirt with freezing over night.
