Those of you who know me or have been following my blog will know that I am inspired by plants and flowers. The only thing in flower in my garden at the moment is this architectural shrub Mahonia x media ‘Winter Sun’. After days of grey skies the sun at last shone this morning giving a hint of blue to the winter sky here in Malvern. Although yellow is one of my least favourite colours I love this shrub for its combination of tough spiky foliage and its racemes of delicate lily-of-the-valley type flowers. To me it symbolises the arrival of the new year – as we say goodbye to the short, dark days of winter and look ahead to the longer, lighter days of spring. A Happy New Year to you all.
