We had an unseasonably warm and humid Thanksgiving Day in Vicksburg yesterday, with the high temperature for the day hovering near 80 degrees.
With rain and cooler temperatures forecast for last night and today, I decided to get a few pictures of some of the flowers blooming in our courtyard before they were battered by the rain.
These pretty red camellias, with bright yellow
centers, bloom until around the end of December.
This colorful "Speedy Sonnet Bronze" Snapdragon should bloom throughout our Mississippi winter months.
This is a picture I took about a month ago of a blue Pansy that is growing in an urn in our courtyard.
As you can see in this next picture (taken last February after a rare Vicksburg snowfall), Pansies also withstand winter temperatures and should bloom until Spring.
I hope you have some flowers or plants that brighten your winter months. I'm looking forward to enjoying the ones I've shared today.
