Cyclamen coum and osmanthus delvayii

We all know that January has very little to recommend it, which is why I wanted to show you this pleasing combination: cyclamen coum and the evergreen shrub osmanthus delvayii.

This osmanthus is very slow growing and its small, glossy leaves are lightening this dim corner of the garden. Its white buds are  visible even now, and by early April it will have a glorious scent.

What’s pleasing in your garden today?
