Winter Joy

(Della): Sharing some winter joy in my garden. When I first created my rose garden 30 years ago, I was sad to see it so bare and drab during the colder months. After retirement, I worked on finding things that would add winter interest, and this afternoon’s warm, setting sun helped to reward me for my efforts.


The garden is far from tidy – it is always a “work in progress” (even when the progress is in reverse) but I have completed the big rose prune and am ready to tackle the wider tree prune and general weed eradication any day now  (or not…).

The added bonus is all the honey-eaters that spend their mornings clambering over these winter treats, the canary island foxgloves (orange spires) in particular. They are my morning coffee entertainment,  watched from my dining table window.
