This corner of the garden is damp and shady - only gets sun for a few hours in the morning. This is the view from our bedroom window; it's good to open the curtains on it as it changes from day to day.

Thanks, phelim-d.
But Donegal isn't half way to Greenland, you know! A lot of the time it's quite mild, especially near the coast, though it is often very windy.
I like your suggestion about guelder rose; I have one elsewhere in the garden - maybe I'll take some cuttings and propagate it. I'm not sure about putting it here, though, it's already pretty crowded and the bank above it is planted with rhodos.
I don't have an autumn photograph but if I remember, I'll rectify that in a few months. It looks ok in the autumn as the birdbath and the Magnolia Stellata add vertical interest. I leave as much of the foliage as possible until the spring - for its colour and texture as well as shelter for wildlife..
