It may be that some of us have overdone the richness of Christmas and would benefit from more 'greens'....for greens go to Cathy's post. I love greens in the garden and to eat...and there are some fine examples there.
My posy IAVOM this last day of 2018, because of the usually mild weather this year, is made up of blooms which normally will have been over by now, but remind me of arrangements during the past year.
Fuchsia Hawkshead, Jasmine Nudifolium which flowers throughout the winter, Fuchsia hemsleyana 'Silver Lining', Lophomyrtus ralphii Little Star, a flower from Heuchera americana, and the spot of blue is from Salvia Corrugata, which is growing well in the open ground but sheltered by a stone wall and under the overhang of the Holm Oak.
Looking back at where the garden was this time last year, I can see that it had advanced well. For gardeners, this time of year is the one for planning, with high expectations for the coming year. Catalogues and wish lists are frequently referred to and updated. The difficult part is working out where to fit plants in.
Wishing everyone joining in with In a Vase on Monday, and here I certainly include the lookers on....a Happy New Year
