The laurel buds in the car park - all standing to attention.
Beautiful blue sky
Tiny clusters of orange flowers on bright magenta stems
It's easy to miss these low growing delicate pastel blue flowers - they're really small
New shoots - so many different colours on one stem
Sunlight illuminating the silver birch bark
Buds showing on the trees
Last time I was at Coombe Wood I wondered if the red things up a tree were blossom or berries - I had a better look this time - they're bright red berries
Shiny bobbles on the Korean pine - are these going to be pine cones?
Manure has been spread on many of the flower beds. Fortunately it's not too smelly. I like the sculptural whitened branches in front of the red stems at the back of the flowerbed
From a different angle - so neat and tidy ready for all the plants to spring into action
So many different buds everywhere plump smooth green buds with a slight red tinge
Bright sun from behind these thick dark leaves producing dark shadows from nearby stems
An attempt at a closer look at the buds or seed pods on the high branches of the tree that will have huge leaves. I'm still none the wiser. I wish I could have a close look at one of these.
More buds - these have separate sections and are much redder than the plump smooth green buds shown earlier
A hole made by a woodpecker. The gardener has seen a parakeet peeping out of here.
These little red buds are about the size of pinheads
Curly pale green leaves
Seed pods forming in the hellebores
Earlier on in the process of forming seed pods
Leafy buds opening
Many of the snowdrops have finished now but the ones along the edge of the grass near the yew arch are still flowering
Several clumps of dried grasses remain - reminding me of sound waves
or patterns from a heart monitors
Tiny Rosemary flowers
Bright sunny splash of colour
Another tiny cluster of orange flowers on bright magenta stems - and a chance for a closer look
A clump of miniature daffodils
An explosion of bulrush seeds
Thank you very much for joining me
