Time to Shine

 

17Jan14 007 (1024x683)At this time of year, when there are few flowers about, some of the background plants in the garden come to the fore; it is their time to shine.  This Pseudowintera colorata is a definite backroom boy and although admittedly has many fine attributes I cannot bring myself to love it.  Some days I am not even sure I like it, I am generally underwhelmed.  Today I am feeling a hint of affection for this New Zealand native, it is after all uncomplaining in a spot that has proved very awkward to fill.  That surely affords it a place in the garden? After all, we can’t all be birds of paradise.
