Midwinter Colour and Fragrance

Rarely does the saying 'less is more' have greater resonance than in the winter garden when the focus is on the texture of bark, the shape of leaf and bud, and the smallest of flowers that are all the more prized for their scarcity, their fragrance nature’s ploy to entice pollinating insects. There is great beauty to be found in the season's limited offerings and, once atuned to the minimalism that replaces summer's lavishness, a gardener's perception is sharpened accordingly. The simplest of sights — a pile of frosted, crinkled leaves, an iris nestling in tangled foliage, or a low sun lighting some flaming stems — take on greater significance as the chill tautens its grip.
