I wondered if I would get a sight like this by this weekend! Despite Storm Doris, I found this first tiny tête-a-tête daffodil today, next to some open, but rather battered, white crocuses. This makes spring another stage nearer, surely?It's kind to share!
I was frantically looking for something even slightly festive for today’s picture. Sadly, the holly had no berries, and its leaves were only wet, instead of decked with snow. Then I found this. It has the rather imposing name of gaultheria procumbens. To you or me, that’s boxberry, eastern teaberry, or American wintergreen. That last name, I think, is quite a bit Christmassy. And the snow? We’ll just have to wait and see…It's kind to share!
Once again, I’m illustrating the effects of our recent strange weather patterns. This beech hedge would normally remain dormant until spring, but yesterday I noticed these buds had appeared. What will happen to them next? I don’t know…It's kind to share!
