January Squares – Firelight

I’m a garden and gardening blogger essentially, so I’ve resolved to try and stick to my theme during Becky at the Life of B‘s January Squares challenge, #JanuaryLight – this will no doubt get harder as the days go on!

Cornus ‘Midwinter Fire’ planted in groups or drifts creates the illusion of firelight, crackling and warm once its leaves have fallen in late Autumn and it’s fiery stems are exposed. It’s a great plant to add colour in winter, this one is part of a drift in Walsall Arboretum and it certainly lights up our walk with Ollie during the darker months!

    I am so impressed you are keeping to the gardening theme, and what a beauty you have found for us today. I love this plant, and the way you have composed your photo it does look exactly like firelight 😀

    Love how you’ve photographed the bright, sunlit stems with a dark background and foreground – they really sing out!
