Frosty winter29.12.2007
It has been nearly a month of beautiful sunny weather with strong frosts at night. When there is heavy fog during the night it will devaporate into this gorgeous hoarfrost. The most picturesque are the evergreens where the shapes of leaves and needles are enhanced to its maximum. So pay a visit to our frosty fairy-tala land :-)

Evergreen ... Rhododendron "Blattgold"06.12.2007
Quite an eye-catcher with its evergreen, or rather ever-yellow leaves.
Evergreen ... Lonicera nitida "Maigrün"06.12.2007
One of the most beautiful evergreen groundcovers.
Coloured fruits ... Ilex x "Nellie R. Stevens"06.12.2007
This holly is one of the few that can be trained into a tree. There are two advantages to do so: it grows relatively fast and it makes a nice, naturaly pyramidal shape. This year in May we pruned the crown to make it denser so it has fewer leaves now but profusion of vivid red berries. As you can, against a clear blue sky it looks fantastic even in December.
Evergreen ... Abelia CONFETTI® "Conti"05.12.2007
Colder days colour the tips of this abelia´s tiny leaves pink. Botanically it belongs to semi-evergreen (or semi-deciduous if you like : we never know which is right: whether the glass is half full of half empty :-) which means that leaves may drop off when temperature goes below some -15°C.
This white cedar has attractive foliage with deep yellow variagation.
Coloured fruits ... Euonymus alatus05.12.2007
Windeg euonymus is popular mainly for its vivid red autumn leaves and when they fall down the shrub reveals another feature: branches with 4 wings and bright orange tiny fruits.
Evergreen ... Rhododendron "Halfdan Lem"23.11.2007
Well, our time is here. Deciduous trees and shrubs have lost their leaves and you may assume there is not much left to show during winter. Wrong. Evergreens are our target and specialization. So here is an excellent example - this rhody has quite big leaves that have deep red stalks and flower buds. Surely makes a change among the other varieties.
Coloured fruits ... Callicarpa bodinieri "Profusion"22.11.2007
Berries from Mars. It is truly hard to believe that these fruits are real in this colour.
Snow in November15.11.2007
Quite a few times this November we have been tempted to show you pictures of our snowed-under garden as something extraordinary, a funny joke of mother nature or just a coincidence ... Well, not funny, not extraordinary, and definitely accidental rather that coincidental. This November is teasing us with numerous snowfalls in such amounts that it is not funny anymore. Don´t take me wrong - I like snow, and winter, but not now!!
snowing ...15.11.2007
So let´s not winge and bring the Christmasy atmosphere some 6 weeks forward to enjoy this cold and white mess on our lovely trees and shrubs, some of which have not dropped all of their leaves yet. And unless you are a keen skier, already lost on to the nearest white hill, have a look at the latest pics :-)
... on and on ...15.11.2007
Snuffling and tramping ...28.10.2007
... one would assume a herd of elephants must be around :-) Well, just a hedgehog, really. This one is our friend, he lives here and is just about to find himself something tasty for supper.
Autumn colours ... Photinia villosa28.10.2007
This photinia is a show-stopper in the autumn and sort of makes it up for the rest of the year when only a few garden lovers lay their eyes on it. It is a lovely and care-free shrub that can grow under just any conditions.
Still blooming ... Rosa "Seafoam"28.10.2007
Anoter gorgeous polyantha/patio rose is called "Seafoam". It has small, double white flowers with a tint of pink. Well, to be truthful, I have seen many seas but never noticed the foam would be pinkish ... :-)

Noticed the difference...?21.10.2007
Well, it is quite useless bringing up the subject of global climate changes and who´s to blame. The truth is, we have just had this year´s first snow. And that was shortly after mid October. Weird but real. 5-7 cm of fresh, heavy and wet snow that took all day to melt. BTW we are USDA zone 6.

It is remarkable how long these cannas continue blooming. And take a good look at the flower petals - with coming autumn the edges loose orange colour that is substituted with deep yellow giving the flower a whole new appearance. You can easily prolong flowering of cannas if you bring them inside before the first frost. Keeping them in a light and warm place will ensure blooming until December. Then it is necessary to let them sleep in a dark and cool place.

Coloured fruits ... Malus COCCINELLA® "Courtarou"11.09.2007

Autumn colours ... Cornus florida "Rainbow"09.09.2007
Quite a few colder days with plentiful of rain made some trees and shrubs believe the autumn has begun. So they started with their foppish show off colouring their leaves. This dogwood for example is called Rainbow, quite pertinent, eh?

This year´s mild winter allows the plants, which in warmer climates naturally bloom in winter, show the flowers even here. This evergreen viburnum is such example. It does not tolerate heavy frost and when the tepmerature drops below -10°C majority of leaves and twigs die back, unless covered with snow. However, it reliably re-sprouts every spring, making some 30 cm long new twigs every year. In our zone we therefore treat it as perennial. Very elegant.
