Winter garden – colourful beauties

Normal, white winter can be so beautiful with snow and frosty motives everywhere, but not here in Mainz. Snow was present for only  1-2 weeks and the only remainder of winter is cold. This makes me already dream about spring with its blossoms and colours. Since I still may need to wait for it quite a long time, I decided to give it a chance and look for flowers already now. To my surprise it was not that difficult.

There are plenty of plants, which look pretty even in the cold season. Others, although in some vegetative state, still look really interesting. Obviously the colours are not that intense. There are more beige, browns, white and light blue. But I think it perfectly fits the aura at the moment. I also found some first signs of spring coming.
