Linda O'Connell captures a few final late season blooms before the snow flies

"With our forecast of very cold temps and snow, I decided to walk around the garden with my camera to capture what is still blooming. What stood out are the valiant little Hebes which are becoming one of our favorite plants with all of their varieties, long lasting flowers, and the fact that they are evergreen in our climate here on Whidbey Island, WA. I've also included a few of our "natural" holiday decorations."
