Gardening in Pennsylvania ~ December 2012

A pretty little bell flower that I think I remember correctly as Campanula 'Tinkerbell'.

One quiet flower in my mostly frozen garden for GBBD today...
I hope that December finds you all warm and snug, enjoying the festivities and friends of the season.

Check out May Dreams for Garden Blogger's Bloom Day. I look forward to seeing some more color from other parts of the world this month.

Renick's Christmas Tree Farm

Cut-your-own Christmas tree in western Pennsylvania. A view over a field of Fraser fir trees.
Christmas tree cutting was a success again this year! We really like the new place that we tried for the first time last year, so we returned. Renick's Tree Farm is a bit out there in the woods, but it is worth the drive just to experience it! Highly recommended for any one in the Pittsburgh, PA area who is looking to buy a fresh cut tree or cut your own Christmas tree.
