Winter wonders

happymarionhappymarion Posts: 4,591

It is New year;s day and the rain has let up at lsst and i can take my camera out in my garden to see the beautiful bare bones of the trees and anything else that thrills me in the winter.  so be prepared for some photographs as soon as they are edited - and some enthusing from this gardener who has been suffering from withdrawal symptoms in our dire wet autumn.  What a treat it is to see the winter sun.

    The winter sun shows up the pink in the bark of the Scots pine.

    Very nice Marion, I love the shape of scots pines. I grew some from seed 20 years ago. They're doing fine, quite substantial trees now, but lack the wonderful presence of a mature specimen.

    We're off to do our New Year's Day flower count now. I'll report in later. 

    happy New Year to all

    Of course I had to inspect my alpines which have kept me so busy removing the wet leaves from them - well i do love them as well as my trees!  This is Sedum spathufolium nestling beside a white form of armeria.
