I have found myself venturing out into various gardens over the course of the last few weeks. It is true that my motivation can be at a lower ebb when the sun is in short supply, the temperature frankly unfriendly and the daylight hours meaner than Scrouge. However, I have been richly rewarded for my suffering.
There is a certain beauty to the garden at this time of year and the miserly light levels actually help to enhance the sense of drama. I have covered the notion of planting for the Winter months in a previous blog but thought I would share some of my recent photos as they uncover an almost spectral nature to the Winter gardens that is well worth braving the elements to see.
