Christmas Spirit in the Garden

Standard

Summer has long passed by and so has fall, but one of my garden plants continued grow as though the warm weather never left. Back in July, I planted three pepper plants hoping they would at least flower. Months went by and all I got was some nice stems with leaves. I’d just about given up until little white flowers started to bloom on each of the plants in the middle of November. Out of several flowers, one green pepper started to grow!

A big miracle in a tiny package!

And then a little red pepper started to bloom . . .

Nature’s wonder, awe

I guess the green pepper wanted a friend!

It’s like my garden is decorating itself for Christmas with little “ornaments” of red and green!

    • That plant finally bit the bullet. The cold was a little too much for it to handle, but I’m still proud of how long it lasted and that it actually produced a “crop.” Can’t wait to see what happens next year. 🙂
