In the January garden .......

Wandering round my garden in January is not really one of my favourite things, specially when it's cold, but a bright morning, with a camera, is something else.
I was looking for the last remnants of colour, and was surprised to find some. Against the blue sky, the sprays of berberis looked lovely. I really must have a play with this picture in Photoshop Elements, and add a few layers in the background! A frosted ice plant, and some honesty. Hopefully they have seeded!!


This berry really shows up against the 'drab' of January ..... it grows horizontally really, and droops down covered in these berries. The birds love it!


and here this looks like Autumn but isn't - I have caught the early morning sunlight on the bottom of the trees and shrubs, which really does add some warmth.
Amazing what colour is in the January garden when you really look.
Till next time .....

Great photos Val and never fear Spring is just around the corner.

There is always something of interest if you look for it Val. By now the signs of spring will be showing themselves - even lovelier.

All very beautiful but where oh where are the budding snowdrops you mentioned??? I was so looking forward to them so much.
I can't grow them here because of the heat and lack of sustained cold in the winter.

Why does on miss things remembered from childhood?

There is such beauty to be found in all seasons if you look for it. Your photos are proof of that.
