It’s a cold and overcast day today (we’ve even got a fire lit indoors) but our blog is looking back on the bright moments and colours of recent weeks.
By our front door the Lithodora is in flower, a sea of blue stars.
On woodland walks there are bluebells and purple orchids, but equally beautiful are ancient woodland plants such as Herb Paris
And the pretty flowers of wild garlic, which you can smell before you see!
Light shines through the trees, which are not yet fully in leaf, creating a dappled semi-shade on the footpaths
All the brightness and colour in nature inspires us to add to it with our human efforts and objects. Therefore, Lucy chose these socks for her birthday this year…
And Brian brought in this spring bouquet, creating the most colourful mantelpiece display possible! (Last year’s birthday gnome was down off the shelf for the day, and beside it is a gnome candle, one of this year’s excellent gifts!)
