|Bringing winter interest indoors|
I've put together stems of Cornus contraversa, Salix gracilistyla 'Melanostachys', Stephanandra tanakae, Hedera 'Rona', Vinca minor, Euonymus 'Emerald and gold' and Equisetum hymale.
|The mottled leaves of Hedera hibernica 'Rona' are quite often tinged with pink|
|Once the ginger beer is drunk I keep some of the dinky bottles as a display|
on the window sill but they also make great wee vases for small things like this
|Coloured stems add so much to the |
garden at this time of year
I found a flower of Galanthus 'Magnet', Hepatica noblis and Cyclamen coum, all bravely putting out first flowers in some of the alpine troughs.
|A shot glass makes the perfect vase for these|
tiny brave souls
|Who can resist fresh eggs from our chickens at this time of year, we're still |
getting a couple a day from our six ladies
