Winter Colour

Yesterday wasn't a brilliant day weather wise but I decided to risk the forecast rain and head up to Anglesey Abbey for a spot of winter colour.

First of all I walked up to the water mill,

then through into the Winter Garden.  The birches were almost glowing.

Round the corner come the dogwoods - many different species and colours

The snowdrops were just starting to appear

The grass heads work well with the red dogwood stems.

And I just love this hedge of dogwood!

The garden isn't just about colour though, it also champions winter scent.

It's a place that's worth visiting at any time of the year, but especially on a winter day.

How fabulous Su especially that grove of birches. Now that's a garden that I would love to visit.

Su, the next best thing to having been able to tag along on your walk has been to see these great photographs. Funny that I took a Central Park walk today, and saw some pretty birch trees, but resisted taking a photo...your birch trees were much more numerous and beautiful. xo

Those birches are beautiful and the dogwood hedge is a sight to behold too.

I love that walk... and haven't been this year.
