A few photos to show what is looking good in the garden this month

A Rosa ‘Warm Welcome’ to December
A rather late Cerinthe major purpurascens
Something is stirring in the Viburnum bodnantense ‘Dawn’
Euonymus fortune ‘Emerald Gaiety’ showing tinges of pink
Jasminum nudiflorum – winter jasmine – lighting up for Christmas
Cotoneaster horizontalis with red leaves as well as berries
Dryopteris ‘Wallichiana’, a lovely splash of green with black hairy stems
A lovely bit of marbling on Arum italicum ‘Marmoratum’
Miscanthus turning a beautiful shade of salmon, possibly ‘Red Chief’
How exciting, Galanthus or snowdrop noses poking through!
Erigeron annuus leaning but still a mass of flowers
Fagus sylvatica ‘Purpurea’ – copper beech – new leaves in bud whilst old ones cling on tight
Sweet box, Sarcococca ‘Confusa’ with shiny black berries
Ox-eye daisy, Leucanthemum vulgare flowering in a sheltered spot, look at that pattern in the centre!
Ilex ‘Golden King’, a variegated female with berries, the holly
And the ivy, Hedera helix
Cyclamen hederifolium, beautiful even without flowers
Prehistoric jaws showing orange teeth or Iris foetidissima, the stinking iris?
There’s lots of room at this inn!
A glossy colourful leaf from Viburnum x burkwoodii
A purple patch, Geranium ‘Bill Wallis’ with Verbena ‘Bampton’
