Our garden in the winter

A selection of pictures from our garden this winter:
Frosty morning. 7 December 2010.
Then it got even colder! 18 December 2010. The snow was with us until just after Christmas.
The violas were snow survivors, planted in early October and still there on 6 February 2011. (Update 20 March 2011: they are still going strong and show no signs of fading.)
Crocuses and snowdrops, heralds of the approaching spring. 6 February 2011.
