Winter in my Garden
Frozen in time and sprinkled with snow
This is the Secret Garden laid out in formally. There are clipped dwarf hedges that centre around a stone fountain. Beyond is a large urn and two impressive yew cones stand sentry.
I love this statue - in fact I love statuary in any garden, discreetly placed among the foliage. I move mine around sometimes giving them something else to focus on. At the moment, this little lady gazes quizically at the frost on the Ligustrum Jonandrum - yes it will survive!
Brrr, borrowed landscape amid a blue cold sky, grasses swirling around with frosted curls and ghostly hydrangea heads amongst the feathers of fat grasses.
A peek through the garden onto a frozen bench.
The garden takes on an ethereal look which is so totally different to the charm and colour of summer. It almost looks vintage.
