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.
Saxifraga hirsuta leaves
Primula veris leaves
X Heucherella ‘Tapestry’ leaves
Verbena bonariensis seed head
Erysimum ‘Bowles’s Mauve’, flowering, it seems, all year around.

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!
Thanks Lisa. I'm sure yours will bloom when the temperatures rise a bit 🙂
These made me feel even colder. Do your hederifolium always flower at this time?
Even in the ice it looks lovely,my veggies are all under frost fleece so it is a blanket of white in my garden. I must get some cyclamen.
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.
Definitely get cyclamen. They take a year or so to really settle in, but then they go for it and are a welcome sight at this time of year.
