This picture was taken a few weeks ago (although taken in December would probably not look the same today). A Hydrangea quercifolia standing solo nestled among leaves. Perhaps it’s not actually in bloom but its elegance still grabs my eye.
Anyone who sees a grouping of Ilex verticillata appreciates their red berries this time of year. I wish I had the ability to create a photograph done completely in black and white except for the red berries of the Ilex. Saxon, can you help us on this one?
And now, a bit of a ‘cheat’ but I couldn’t resist. This time of year, Longwood Garden’s conservatories are breathtaking. Here are a couple of vignettes that bring joy to all of the holiday visitors. Enjoy and have a wonderful holiday season!!
