Witch Hazel, Snowdrops and the Beauty of Winter

In spite of the biting cold outside we have a cluster of exotic looking Witch Hazel in the gallery, courtesy of our friend Jo the super gardener. It's an extraordinary plant; I love the structure of the twigs and the contrasting fluffiness of the yellow flowers.

When the elusive winter sun appears long shadows are cast down the gallery garden and the stepping stones illuminate.

On a stroll through the garden I was delighted to see that the snowdrops are here at last.
