At last, winter has arrived in the Netherlands and brought us snow. Just an inch or so, but I'm happy as everything looks so pretty right now. We don't have snow all that often so I'll enjoy it while it lasts.
Here's a picture of my south facing border and one of the birdbath that was also on display the day before yesterday with my lovely Hellebore orientalis.
Have you seen but a bright lily grow
Before rude hands have touched it?
Have you marked but the fall o' snow
Before the soil hath smutched it? Ben Jonson,
