Garden Bloggers' Bloom Day, January 2016

I finally had some time to take some photos of my flowers and plants.  Here is what's going on in the front of the house.  

On the right side of the porch from back to front:

Top shelf, Rosemary topiary from Christmas.  Catnip that seeded and is now growing.
Second shelf, back:  Lambs Ear and Viola
On top of blue box:  Feverfew, Blue Delphinium
On the ground Rosemary, Yarrow, Rosemary, Thyme, Delphinium, Viola and my pruned Fragrant Plum Rose
On the step: Red Geranium
Close ups:
Lambs Ear, Viola
Blue Delphinium
White Delphinium
Right side of the front porch.
Top shelf:  Pink Ivy Geranium, Rosemary
Second shelf:  Viola, Viola
Bottom shelf (not visible):  Mugwort
In the very 
back:  Nastirtium, Rosemary
Next:  Delphinium, Larkspur
Next:  Pine,
Next:  Catmint,
Next:  Red Geranium
You can sort of see the Brugmansia (Angel Trumpet) tree to the left of pruned rose in the corner.  I finally put it in a larger pot.  I have another one that I moved to the front of the house and repotted into a larger pot.  It had rooted itself in the ground and the landlord would have a fit if I'd left it root so we had to pull it out.  It's a beautiful tree.  I hope it will bloom as nicely in its new pot. 
Close ups.
