This winter has been the mildest and driest I can remember. Wandering around the garden I see Cornflowers and Penstemon still in flower - in January! But the winter stalwarts are in abundance too. This collage shows some of the best plants at the moment. From left to right, top to bottom;
Iris reticulata 'Harmony', Rosa 'Zephirine Drouhin', Viburnum davidii, Corylus avellana (Common Hazel), Erysimum 'Winter Orchid', Daphne bholua 'Jacqueline Postill', Salix alba 'Golden Ness' and the stinking Hellebore, Helleborus foetidus.
