Midwinter, clear blue skies, sunny, freezing. A very hard frost last night and it's still -1 at midday. I took a short walk around the garden and photographed a few plants in their frozen state. Winter has it's own beauty that, to me, is just as fabulous as a floriferous mid summers day.

Cyclamen hederifolium

Saxifraga hirsuta leaves

Sarcococca confusa

Primula veris leaves

X Heucherella 'Tapestry' leaves

Verbena bonariensis seed head

Erysimum 'Bowles's Mauve', flowering, it seems, all year around.
