February Focus


Wee extra for this week! I rather liked this combination of winter aconites with their cheery moptops and green frilled collars against the contrast of the red cornus stems. Discovered earlier in the walled garden.

  1. What a happy color contrast! Some of the best combinations are serendipitous. I love when the garden offers little surprises. Whenever I go for a stroll through the garden, it seems there is always something unexpected waiting for me to discover.


  2. I think that those aconites are highlighting the stems of the Cornus beautifully.
    Cornus is a new addition to my garden this year I’ll be looking for something to under plant with. Will look into what conditions they need. Thanks for the inspiration 🙂


  3. I love winter aconites but mine aren’t out yet. There is a park down the street where acres of aconites bloom. I did a blog post on it it last year as a wonder of nature. It has been very cold here so everything is behind. Many of my earlier snowwdrops sufferened from the weather because their flower stalks bent. So disappointing when you wait all year for one special new cultivar to bloom. Oh well, next year.


  4. The Winter Aconites I just love, I must find a spot to give these a try, seems like they should thrive in either acidic or alkaline soil. Off to add you to my list of blogs I like, thought I had already done it.
