It is the twelfth, but not last, Bloom Day (the comments in that link get you to other Bloom Day posters) hosted by Carol, over at May Dreams Gardens. The idea is to capture any blooms we can find, even in these unbloom-time months (for some of us).
I wasn't successful at finding blooms, but I have been enjoying the texture in the garden from these dried blooms. Anise hyssop, above. The tallest part being about 6 foot. I suspect I'll have seedlings all over the garden this year. There could be worse things!
And Bee Balm / Monarda. I would have zoomed in more, but I liked the lines created by others stalks in the background. Click on the "Bloom Day" label to see postings from prior months. I see I should have some blooms in the yard by February!
