With all the vibrant colours of spring around, I find myself turning back to these golden winter flowers and grasses. I saw these in the Oxford Botanical Gardens on a day not long before Christmas, when the ground was frosty and the gardens empty. There was a low winter sun in the sky, and the muted December palette seemed every bit as lovely as a verdant spring meadow. Just something to think about as you weave daisy chains in the sun this May Day (which you should be doing right now, by the way)…
