The garden retained some colour into late autumn, particularly the fiery red geraniums; but even they have given up the ghost. However, one patch of ornamental grass is now a corn-yellow colour and, rather pretty. In contrast to the rest of the garden which is rather muted, it stands out proud. Probably I should be cutting it back now but, I have decided to leave it. The garden is mostly shades of green; the sky mostly shades of grey. The shortest day was on Sunday and, we really are in the depths of Winter but, without the excitement of snow. However, Dan has decorated a shrub at the front with multi-coloured lights, adding a bit of fun while nature is lying low.
