Frosne urter, afrikablad og ribbet rose


Hvis jeg ikke tar helt feil, er dette sitronmelisse (Melissa officinalis), slik den fremstår nå. Nesten finere enn om sommeren?


Utrolig hva frosten kan gjøre med små, runde urteblad...


 Minner ikke dette bladet litt om Afrika?  Eller er det bare i min livlige fantasi, kanskje.



Se nærmere på en rosekvist, en vissen staudestilk og et forhenværende Hostablad.



Skal ikke gå i detaljer om hva som skjedde under et usedvanlig klønete jordklumpkast (hulk!). Men selv det som gjenstår av rosen 'Golden Wings' reiser seg stolt i vinterværet!

  1. Dear Villrose, how wonderful is a little snow on your garden! I have not seen snow or frost. In my region it is always warmer than the rest of the country. Roses are stil flowring.... Groetjes, Hetty

    1. So you are partly Norwegian! The pretty landscape is the best part of living here - the long, dark winter is not.
