The year ends on a cold note; very apt for the year it has been. Yet whilst it is cold the garden remains resilient and continues: I could extrapolate the metaphor further but you get the idea I'm sure.Coronation Street studios five years ago. This means this mahonia is about five years old and it is now settled and growing well. It is about three foot tall now and I have hopes it will continue to grow, I want big. I think it is Mahonia 'Charity' which can get to be very tall.
isted willow by the side of the pond is shining rather prettily as the frost drips from it. I think the willow is Salix 'Erythroflexuosa' and I bought it many years ago now from a trip to Devon. It has grown into rather a fine tree and whilst I have had to prune it a little as it was getting a tad large, it has proved itself to be a very good buy.
Thanks as ever to Helen for hosting this meme.
Happy new year to all, lets hope that 2021 is kinder to us. Staysafe, stay well and always be kind.
