Golden Larch

There is a larch tree in a corner of the garden that comes into its own for a few days once temperatures start to fall into the negative range. A bit ho-hum for the other 51 weeks of the year but a real stand oout at the moment.

Late Autumn in the Garden

Viburnum, Amelanchier canadensis and a sour cherry tree – beyond them a Chinese grass, the species of which I forget. A visually interesting time of the year in the garden with the different coloours on the same date.
