Snow comes to Dorset - March 2018
Snow at Wimborne, Dorset
This month snow came to Wimborne, so I thought that I would take a rare opportunity to get out and about and explore nature and the landscape whilst it was covered in a blanket of snow.
Although I can’t do much gardening work in this weather, I can plan what I’m going to do – in my own garden and clients’ gardens – as I walk and admire the beautiful snowy scenery.
Cotoneaster Salicifolius – Willow leaved Cotoneaster is a small to medium, low-lying evergreen arching shrub and makes a great addition to the garden, giving all year round interest, also a good food source for the birds such as blackbirds, thrushes and waxwigs.
Daffodill buds can survive cold and freezing weather conditions for short periods of time and so hopefully these will come in to flower!
A stream that has a rust appearance due to the iron in the water, and bacteria feeding on it!
Ivy berries are a rich source of nectar, pollen and food for the insects and birds, and look very attractive as well!
Leaves can be a mix of interesting colours, and can brighten up a winter scene.
