They Came from Outer Space

A group of evergreen grasses along with pruned Cornus (dogwood) stems look rather otherworldly in very bright January sunshine. Photographed at a botanic garden a couple of years ago.

I planted a dogwood and some grasses in the garden here last year – which seem to be thriving. The bright red stems of the dogwood really do cheer and brighten the darker months of Winter; a real favourite.
