The days are a bit longer now; the sunrise comes earlier then it did in December.
Soon, not too long now, it will be February and then - maybe - just maybe more blossoms will appear in the garden.
But even now in this season of quiet simplicity the garden has it's beauty.
The lush green of moss on a Japanese maple branch.
Raindrops gathered on the upright leaves of the Nandina sparkle in the winter's light like diamonds.
The beauty of the upper pond as raindrops cause perfect patterns on its surface.
And the fragile unusual beauty of this daphne odora.
Blessings from the winter's garden,
