 Hello and welcome to GBBD where gardeners around the globe post what is blooming in their gardens. We had some torrential rains yesterday and the garden is a bit soggy.  Still the plants are loving every minute of it as well as the slugs and snails. 
Those of you up north are preparing for the winter season and the yuletide. We are also preparing for Independence and the yuletide. To see more blooming gardens please go over to Carol the brainchild of this meme
Enjoy your week and take care.
