Adventures in Boots – Latimer House – December 2016

dec-2 December is a quiet time for flowers in the garden but it’s a very aromatic time for winter flowering shrubs. Even though it isn’t winter just yet, this week I spotted a Viburnum x bodnantense whilst working in a garden. The blossom wasn’t quite fully open but the scent was sweet & pleasant. These stems can be pruned & bought into the house to add some lift next to evergreen swags. dec-3 Winter offers clear crisp days, perfect for photography plus the woods are much quieter with the kids indoors on their screens. Nothing quite like a silent walk in the forest on a sunny, crisp day tuning into the sounds of the birds & trees. Here are some photos I took whilst out walking a heritage trail around Latimer House near Chesham. That’s mistletoe growing high up in the poplar tree if anyone fancies a challenging kiss. dec-4 Save Save
