Winter in the Garden

Winter - cold, dark and damp. The roe deer put on their heavy winter coats and the birds make the most of the free food in the bird feeders, hoping to survive until spring.

The winters in England are not usually severe. In our English Country Garden we don't often get snow and when it falls it doesn't stay long. However, the winter of 2009/2010 was a bad one. Several periods of snow and temperatures down to -12C which was very unusual. The added bonus was the wildlife who congregated close to the house for shelter and looking for food.

The trees are bare but some brave shrubs provide some colour. Then the snowdrops arrive heralding the end of winter and the start of spring.
