Garden Views-012-December 2011

 Much of December 2011 was gloomy, grey and wet… 13/12/11

….but it meant that it stayed mild for much of the month, and there was still much stem and foliage interest….even if tweaked a bit 16/12/11

One of the last shots of the hares before relocating…. in a snowstorm with roses….in December!! 13/12/11

Snow or hail often highlights garden hard landscaping features – in this case the cobbles outside our front door 18/12/11

And first Hamamelis ‘Vesna’ flower 27/12/11

But still Alstroemeria flowers in December ? 30/12/11

And White Honesty ?? 30/12/11. A very strange end and beginning to a gardening year

Our mossy copse at the turn of the year 30/12/11 Cyclamen coum providing relief from the greens and browns of the vista
