Love the colour change in this #skimmia from the vibrant red of the closed flower heads to the white as they pop open 😊 and at last the sun is shining and the wind has stopped blowing!

Whilst at the garden centre buying birthday presents (obviously where else would you buy presents) I treated myself to some #wintercolour into my #wintergarden as inspired by posts of them on GardenTags 😊 #bestofjan
