It snowed this week. Not such amazing news to those of you who live in colder climes, but something that doesn't happen here every year. Although it's presence has put paid to all outdoor gardening activity, it does clothe the garden in a new and different guise.
1. The Swiss Alps
3. The Rose GardenAnd after every trip away (even imaginary ones), arriving home is always a pleasure, and it is a pleasure to see the Rose garden dusted with snow. It has rather slowed down progress on the rose pruning though.
Yet despite the cold weather, these Pieris have their buds ready for action once Spring arrives.
