On a cold and frosty morning
Beautiful frosting on the Hebe this week.
It's been -4C, no more mildness, but a few breaks in the wind.
All the ground hugging foxglove leaves looked like this.
Alpine Strawberry leaves, a promise of things to come.
Same Epimedium without frost.
I've really appreciated it's glossy leaves through Winter
Subtle colouring on this small Azalea.
It will have lilac blooms around May
And of course, the seasons little wonders - snowdrops.
I'd seen some pushing through last week but then found that in other parts of the garden they were already in full bud. They will need a bit more time and sun to tempt them to open.
