Flateridge Cottage in the snow

Winter flowers are all the more precious for their scarcity, an uplifting sight that even the coldest weather cannot suppress.

'I've planted my garden to ensure there are flowers in every season, creating a place to stroll around most days of the year — especially in winter when the colour and texture really cheer me up,' says John Massey from his cottage on the banks of the Staffordshire and Worcestershire canal. It is no wonder he is cheered. As the sun rises above skeletal trees, the reflections of fiery willow stems and ghostly grasses creep across the still canal waters. Closer at hand, gold and orange witch hazel petals hang stiffly crimped above clumps of aconites, cyclamen, irises, hepaticas, snowdrops and hellebores. 'Every day brings new flowers, so I've always a reason to go outside,' he adds.
