Six on Saturday – Winter Structures

12 Jan

I had thought to show you the signs of Spring in our garden – a lone Daffodil, Primroses and Snowdrops but Propogator himself did that so I’ll show you Spring later as it develops.
I love the effects of winter on the plants which show their structure more clearly when the foliage has gone or is dying.

Fern skeletons

Aquilegea seed pods

Zebra grass, Miscanthus Sinensis

Beautiful Birch stems


Weeping Beech


So, those are  my Six this Saturday. For more Sixes on Saturday, from gardeners all over the world, take a look at the site mentioned abovet

    Lovely Six, there is indeed much to be admired in the winter garden, if only we look. I have that zebra grass as well, I cut back some of it to make way for the new growth. I could probably have left it for a while yet. Impatient….

    Your pictures are also a reminder that brown, like green, is a million different colours that we are the poorer for failing to notice. Rich browns, glistening with rain or lit by winter sun are lovely, but how often you hear a dismissive “oh, it’s all brown at this time of year”, or some such.

      Thank you for this observation. I love the beautiful range of browns and greens and yellows and whites and……. I love the beauty all around us which often goes unobserved. 🙂

    There is much to be enjoyed in a winter garden. I love the peeling bark and the herringbone cotoneaster. I am guessing that the blackbirds loved the berries!
