Splash of Colour - December

Here is my Splash Of Colour for December, hosted by Silverpebble.  There are also some bright and cheery photos on the Splash of Colour Flickr group.

I was quite amazed at how much colour there still was in the garden at this time of year:

 1.Christopher Marlow frosted   2.Orange Rosehip   3.Cotoneaster Berries
4.Clematis Freckles   5.Choisya    6.Rose Thorns
7.Red Rosehip   8.Paperbark Cherry   9.Christopher Marlow in the snow

 It's bitterly cold here but we have escaped with less snow than most of the rest of the country.  Hope you're all managing to keep warm.

That thorn image is amazing - really dramatic.

It still looks very cold where you are, there's frost on those flowers. There isn't much colour in my garden at the moment, only white.

I only wish I had that much colour in my backyard. I have to admit it's mostly just varying shades of brown. Love those rose thorns.

There is hardly any colour in my garden at all -just white with shades of brown! Will have to be inventive for December's Splash of Colour!!

Love the red rosehip.
