With the sun shining this morning, It was a good time to refresh my winter bouquets.
Flowers for picking are scarce this time of the year, but there is interesting texture and color in the shrubbery.
Winter Jasmine for color.
Sarcococca for fragrance
Skimmia for berries and flowers
Euonymus for color
Tom is out picking too, but his "bouquet" will be headed for the yard waste bin. It's time for winter pruning.
We've had a green winter so far, but there is a possibility of snow on the weekend. We'll see. It it does come, you can be sure I'll be out again with my camera.
Tom got the driveway cleaned up last week. I like the tidy look of winter.
Shrubs in the front yard keep it interesting in winter, and give the birds lots of cover.
I took Josy out for a bit, but she hurried right back inside when I let her loose. She is preferring to enjoy the sunny day from her inside perch.
I must confess, I do have a few spots of color from purchased flowers too. But the filler greens are from the garden.
