Garden Blogger's Foliage Day ~ December 2011

Hardy ivy (Hedera helix)
A few frosty shots for Foliage Day at Gilmore Gardens.
It has been getting steadily colder here, even with an entire inch of snow last weekend. Oh, my! (Note: We often have had over a foot of snow here in Pennsylvania by Thanksgiving. Not this year though.)

Berberis thunbergii
These are the seed heads of Sedum 'Autumn Joy' but I will include them here because I still love them.
Creeping phlox (Phlox subulata) on our Hill; lovely in frost
Driveway Garden with lavender and creeping phlox by the walk
Low growing catmint (Nepeta 'Walker's Low') at the front edge of Front Walk
Columbine (Aquilegia) seedling that looks sprightly despite 12 degrees F (-11 C)
For more Foliage Day, visit Christina at Hesperides Garden for views from around the world.


  1. Lovely frosty photos, proof that foliage is just as interesting as flowers. We are still waiting for our first proper frost, everything is too wet and soggy!
    Have a wonderful Christmas.

  2. Beautiful frosted foliage...we have frost too and no snow...and we were ranked the number 1 snowiest city....not this year

  3. They all look so pretty, but I especially love the barberry because of its red coloring. Have a very Merry Christmas!

  4. This is the time of year that I always wish I had planted pretty! Love the little Columbine...can't believe I've NEVER had a single seedling.

  5. That Columbine is hardy! Lovely frosty shots! Happy Holidays!

  6. I hope you had a wonderful Christmas Julie and that your 2012 is full of pleasant surprises. Stay warm.
