What a difference a month makes.


Just flicking through some of my pics and I realised that this pic was taken 7th Nov.

This was a last burst of colour before the on set of winter.
This next pic however was taken the other day almost a month apart, check out the sudden loss of leaves, the gunnera has been cut down to cover the crown. There is not much colour left and it all looks a bit vacant.

I know we need this time period so all the plants can have a period of rest, so they can give us a better show next year, but it’s all a bit dull right now.

It’s cold, wet, windy a dark oh and I have to do jobs around the house.
Roll on Spring 2009.

Now come on - you have interesting shapes and evergreen structure in there! So it is still interesting. No, not all that colourful, but I see some different shades of green, variegation and a deep red as contrast, so not a write-off to be ignored, Trees.

Good planning!

I agree, Spritz. Looks very good to me for the time of year.

There's a good variety of colour.
If we didn't have a winter, we couldn't have a spring.

Does that sound optimistic ?
I hope so.
Your garden looks attractive whatever the season.
More green seems visible in the winter months,
but that's attractive :o)
