February 2017: More Snow

We returned from two weeks in Peru and Ecuador to two lovely days of blue skies and sunshine. Then this morning...snow again, and the garden is once more a composition in black and white.

The only vestige of colour comes from a few green leaves on my potted golden bamboo.Yesterday, I thought I saw one little purple crocus flower and a spark of yellow on a clump of winter aconites, but they are buried this morning. Plump buds on my Corylopsis pauciflora looked close to opening too, but today they are just a frieze of warm brown against a white background.
