Merry Christmas!

 "For to us a child is born, to us a son is given, 
and the government will be on his shoulders. 
And he will be called Wonderful Counselor, 
Mighty God, Everlasting Father, Prince of Peace."
Isaiah 9:6

Winter solstice

Christmas Rose, Helleborus niger, lifting to the light.
There is still hope growing, even on this day, the shortest day of the year...

December 2016 ~ GBBD at Havenwood

English holly for a proper English garden, even in PA ;)
Welcome to December in my Pennsylvania garden! 

The snow has fallen on Havenwood and all that was brown is now fresh & clean again in time for Christmas. We are celebrating our third anniversary of being in our beloved garden, with most of it being just 1-2 years old. I love the kind of garden that most Americans would consider an English-look, though in reality it is really a combination of the formal hedges from the Italians, French styling in materials and colors, and an English-style planting.

Enjoy your look around!
