I never, or hardly ever, manage to be completely wordless so I intend to use Wednesdays to share with you some of the views, vignettes or individual flowers that I am enjoying each week.
Sometimes there will be much to admire (I hope) and sometimes I may have to search for something; but if I do search I’m sure I can find something to love each week.
The following images were taken on Tuesday afternoon, 12th January, a mild day with mainly blue skies but with some high cloud.
This bearded Iris flowered very early last year too, I think should be picked to enjoy in the house just in case the promised snow does arrive later in the week
Yellow crocus, advance warning that it might soon be spring. Sorry about the focus but I hope to catch them with the flowers open tomorrow and then hopefully there will be more to focus on.
Bulbine, has been flowering for a while, but as the flowers slowly work up the stem as it grows they are a little under-whelming, but I have been enjoying them just the same.
Lonicera fragrantissima – I love the fragrance of this shrub honeysuckle.
The Lonicera has only just lost its leaves and it seemed to wait for that to happen before the first flowers opened.
Anemone coronaria ‘Sylphide’, the first bud
Nandina domestica, too lovely to spoil by picking these berries, they last so long on the plant.
The red Crab apple still has most of its fruit
Evergreens doing just what I want!
