Winter Days have persisted really since the run up to
Christmas and from then onwards.
Today is cold and monotone,
trees stand dark against the dull
sky and the occassional bird flits
from branch to branch. Snow has
not fallen here, but other places
have become magically blanketed
with white and the air is frosty.
Now is when winter plants bring
us delight – whether we have
the white stems of a Birch, the
peeling bark of a Prunus, a
variegated Holly beneath which
might sit a Hellebore with its
buds slowly unfurling. Such
plants are tough and quietly mark
the passing January and February
days, year in year out. Daily a
wander outside will reveal to us
these changes and small wonders
before our eyes. Each day the first groups of
Snowdrops grow a
little taller, so the patches of white begin to
the winter days become much more interesting …. Spring
must be on its
way. Best wishes!
