We don't have White Winter like other gardeners in higher latitude closer to arctic or antarctic experience in winter. Don't have snow here and so far micro-climate helps us escape from frost. But with the cold weather, it is still hard for a gardener like me to go outdoors during this season. So for fun, I seek other colour than green in our mid-winter garden. Surprisingly I found many yellow colours in our mid-winter garden. This findings makes me cheerful enough to spend more time in the garden. Moreover, most of this cheerful things in the garden is edible and self-seeded. Most of these plants are commonly found in any temperate garden during summer. Although our plants are a bit weird (supposedly winter here), grown from home-saved seeds has adapted to our cold weather and become a bit cold-hardy.
