Winter Garden Color

Our garden has grown enough to be fairly attractive in the winter. I enjoy the evergreen foliage, especially the purples and reds. We have several flowers blooming now, Camellia, Hebe, & Primrose; the Hellebore should start soon.

Hebe 'Alecia Amhurst' with a dusting of frost. The Humming Birds are enjoying the flowers.
One last Hydrangea flower, also dusted with frost

A little bug-eaten, but the Primrose flower is still a delight to find blooming.
On January 5th the Association of NW Landscape Designers and the Hardy Plant Society of Oregon are sponsoring a lecture and garden tour of winter gardens; in the morning Roger Gossler and C. Colston Burrell will talk about the winter garden and then the afternoon will be spent touring winter gardens.

That Hydrangea looks stunning! I looks like a flower made of sugar.

You're right about the primrose a little on the beaten side but they're still nice flowers.
