These first three pictures were taken just by the roadside.
The light was fantastic.
Nandina domestica - an evergreen shrub that has these lovely reddish purple leaves when young and in the winter. It is frost hardy, but can only stand temperatures down to -5C .....
... so no harder please Mr Frost!
Taxus baccata fastigiata aurea - an upright golden Yew. A great evergreen shrub that gives a garden real presence, with it's upright habit it looks like an exclamation mark in the garden.
Even the tennis court netting looked mysterious with the frost clinging to it!
