Winter flower

Flowers in the winter do seem to be a great joy, I have a bunch of flowers from the garden on my desk which give off a great scent as I sit here getting a talk ready for Austria next week. The highlight of the bunch has to be Chimonanthus praecox, not a great looking shrub in the summer but a show stopper in the winter, another is Sarcococca confuse, a great plant year round but a shrub that gives strong scent in the winter. These plants help get you out into the garden at this time of the year.

  1. Well what a lovely post Aaron!! The only thing missing is a loving tiny picture of me on that desk. I will be sure to bring you one in May for your desk. Tiny but perfectly placed. You can keep it in the drawer until I visit then you can place it out. I hate January. I am restless.
