The Nicest Present

The Nicest Present

Under the tree the gifts enthrall,
But the nicest present of them all
Is filling our thoughts with those who care,
Wanting our Christmas joy to share.

To you, whom we're often thinking of,
We send our holiday joy and love.

Merry Christmas and Happy New Year my blogging friends! There's more I'd like to share with you below:
Bees in December?

 I had a little time off from work and used that time to visit the lovely garden walk at Hatcher Garden which is just a few blocks away from my temporary  home.

Bumble and Honey bees were every where and even though I was excited and surprised to see them.... the sight of them really  confused my cognitive senses......... I stood in front of this yellow shrub for several minutes talking to myself and asking myself questions like.....this is December.... right?
I'd love to learn what this shrub is called, thanks for sharing if you know... It doesn't have a scent to it and reminds me of Snap-dragons. 
( unfortunately Hatcher Garden is lacking on name posting ).

 Can you see the Honeybee?

 All The beauties below are winter flowers and look like roses, there are no scent to these either, I'm clueless, .... Do share if you know...

I end this post with winter berries and hope to learn the names of most, if not all the plants I've posted. I have a lot to learn about the plants of the south as I adjust to my new home, thank you for visiting.
