I love gardens and I love Winter, therefore it doesn't take a genius to work out that I love gardens in Winter. As we moved into this house only two months ago, I do not know my garden yet and have no notion of the secrets it holds within it's earth. Far from being dormant, it still has colour and life even in December. The mild days and sunshine have kept leaves on trees for longer and tiny flowers blossoming bravely on. There is plenty to admire and plenty to look forward to.
While the garden looks pretty now, snow and frost would add a completely new dimension and turn it into a secret garden from a child's story book, full of magic and promises. It will come, we just have to wait.
