Heart shaped mahonia buds
I wonder why all these seed pods face upwards - surely seed pods would need to droop down so the seeds can drop out?
Gorgeous purply blue
Another thing I wonder - how are these orange berries still hanging on to their disintegrated pods?
Among all the seed pods and pine needles that have caught on these branches pale green shoots are emerging all around
Quick glimpse of blue sky
and then the grey clouds rolled in
Yet again I was back at the hydrangea skeletons - so delicate and intricate
The prairie beds have been mulched and the rest of the paths have had their wood chips renewed
Such strong colours in the flowerbeds approaching the gate
The euphorbias now have a pair of bells dangling from each little flower
Out top room is a fabulous place to watch sunsets from
and from a bedroom on the next floor down
Thank you very much for joining me.
