Since my last visit some of these flowers have shot up in height. They might be polyanthus.
They have creamy white petals and yellow star-like centres.
Little blue flowers not much bigger than my thumbnail, with miniscule individual florets - still flowering.
Upright brown seeds.
Slender branches swaying in the gentle breeze.
Tiny blue flower perched on top of a rock.
A cluster of beautifully patterned dwarf irises.
Tiny threads of blossom opening.
Beautiful blue sky.
The dark area is spreading further down the Korean pine cone as it becomes more and more fragile. Eventually it will disintegrate on the tree releasing the seeds.
At the tip of each branch two or three little spheres sit - looking as if they have been frosted.
The callicarpa berries are very wrinkled now.
Low sunlight on a mossy oak trunk.
Back to the witch hazel flowers again. The ones in the far right cluster have dropped their "ribbons" revealing how much the calyxes resemble bluebell shapes.
Tiny rose tinged seed pods, each with a spike on the top. This whole plant has been showered with pine needles which glint in the low sunshine.
Looking up at the pattern of pine against the sky.
Many of the pine trees are very tall and lanky. The second one in from the left looks as if it's wearing a fluffy trunk warmer because of the small leafed ivy growing up it.
I'm sure these little pine needles would make a lovely pen and ink drawing.
Sunlight on the stepping-stones or maybe I should call them stepping-logs.
There are a lot more pale green flowers on the other witch hazel tree now. Apparently there are many varieties of witch hazel and they can have flowers in different shades of greens, through pale yellow, orange and red to deep red and even purple.
The large mushroom looks as if it has disintegrated or been trampled on.
A few of the fluted gills remain - reminding me of something from under the sea.
Under the biggest Spindle tree many of the thick waxy flowers now lay on the ground - their red and black berries having already dropped or been eaten by birds.
A surprising number still remain on the tree.
Other berries close by.
Pampas grass rustling in the breeze.
This is one of the last deciduous trees to have any leaves left on it now.
Sunlight illuminating silver birch branches.
Barely visible tiny blue flowers with two little empty calyxes looking like open beaks (top right)
Thank you very much for joining me.
I hope to add an art-update tomorrow.
