Midwinter, clear blue skies, sunny, freezing. A very hard frost last night and it’s still -1 at midday. I took a short walk around the garden and photographed a few plants in their frozen state. Winter has it’s own beauty that, to me, is just as fabulous as a floriferous mid summers day.

Cyclamen hederifolium

Saxifraga hirsuta leaves

Sarcococca confusa

Primula veris leaves

X Heucherella ‘Tapestry’ leaves

Verbena bonariensis seed head

Erysimum ‘Bowles’s Mauve’, flowering, it seems, all year around.

  1. Hi Gwenfar,
    I really enjoyed your pictures! Especially the cyclamen look great! My cyclamen coum have already produced many buds, but don´t bloom yet. I can´t wait for them to bloom!
    Best wishes,

  2. This is their 2nd winter. In the first I had a couple, and this winter lots more. So I'm guessing as they get more established they flower more at this time of year. But that's just a guess.
