Winter brightness

Hamamelis 'Harry'
 A few photographs from Colesbourne Park on a beautifully sunny but chilly day. The mild winter has brought many plants out earlier than usual, though the snowdrop display is still a long way off its peak and the colder weather over this weekend will gently apply the brakes.

Crocus atticus (sieberi) 'Firefly'

Galanthus 'Ophelia', picking itself up after overnight frost.

Teasels (Dipsacus fullonum)

Prunus x subhirtella 'Autumnalis Rosea'

Cyclamen coum
Cornus sericea 'Flaviramea' and C. alba 'Sibirica'


  1. The contrasting cornus do look striking. I bet you are pleased we have some cold weather to slow the snowdrops down
