December Delights On Blooming Friday

Dew-drenched wildflowers

Today’s theme is December Delights and there are many! This is the time of the year when we wake up to dewy mornings. When the heat that we live with for the rest of the year has bid us au revoir. It’s time to indulge! With all that dew falling on them, veggies never tasted better! There’s so much to look forward to. Plant annuals, re-pot, add manure. Plan a picnic, go on another bird-watching trip…for us this is the best time. Without the oppressive heat, all impossible things seem possible!

Fruit of the season

Although several fruits are available during the cooler months, oranges are synonymous with our winters. Though they start to appear in the markets from November, they taste best in December. One December delight is surely when the family sits in that wintry sun, peeling and having the juiciest oranges.

Otaheite Gooseberry/Phyllantus acidus

These pictures (above and below) were taken in my friend Smita’s garden recently. Both varieties are acidic and does well for sweet and spicy pickles. Pickling days are here again….

Star appeal!

It was a joy to find my coreopsis re-seeding recently. In this season the cut flowers last much longer. The photo below is of flowers cut five days ago.

Find out more at Katarina’s  ROSES AND STUFF. It’s interesting to see the different interpretations.

Thank you for stopping by. Hope you all have a great weekend!

    I once had neighbours from India when we were staying in Switzerland. His mother mad him some spicey pickles of Lemon, speiced with a lot of chili! They tasted strong (I felt a fire burning behind my eyes for a week at least..) but tasty. I will never forget them. Must be nice with a bit more humid climate outside and as I can see, it’s still snowing over at your place 🙂

  2. I don’t do well in the heat so I can understand how you must feel…I can’t imagine being able to get oranges in my yard in December….I’d have to move to the southern United states for that… have a good weekend…Michelle

  3. I love those delicate wildflowers! We do not have any flowers in the winter…so you do? i somehow had missed the Hornbill post, but have caught up now. They must have been very cold in those outfits!

    Hi Kanak, i wonder why i always experience some problems in your site, reason i don’t often open yours. But i love the color of that lantana, it is so lovely even if wild. The orange i have is also from the wild i got from a far province.

    I can imagine how sweet those oranges taste! And the other fruits and veggies too.
