The snowdrops are coming up, some just pushing through whilst others are at the flowering stage.

|A variegated holly brings colour to a border.|
|The Corylus Avellana Contorta, also known as Harry Lauder's Walking Stick or corkscrew hazel, brings interest in Winter. (I prefer it in Winter than in Summer.)|
|A variegated ivy flower head.|
|The red stemmed dogwood - one of my favourite Winter shrubs. (It's not very interesting in Summer but makes up for it in Winter!)|
|Kale Curly Scarlet looks lovely in the Winter sun.|
More snowdrops amongst the trees. A Winter favourite!
I'm toying with the idea of changing my blog name to Northern Ireland Garden Diary, just in case you notice the name change at the top. Not sure why, but I fancy a change in 2012.
