A bright and sunny December day in the garden

A couple of weeks ago I had a quick walk around the garden and I'm happy to report that there was still a lot of detail to look at even though we're in the depths of winter.

I've tried to plant a garden with year round interest and it's lovely to see the local wildlife enjoying the garden as much as we do. We don't have any exotic visitors to the garden, but it is the welcome home of frogs, mice, various insects and birds. There's lots of plants to take shelter in or under, grasses to use for bedding material, there's berries and seeds to eat, plants to perch on, water to drink and bathe in, and so on.

I haven't posted any garden photos in ages so I thought I'd show you the ones that I took that cold but bright and sunny day mid-December...

The following week, however, all that bright colour and warm texture was transformed with a blanket of snow and the scene changed completely. I'll show you those photos in my next post...
