Joining in with this popular garden bloggers meme
One of my favourite activities at this time of year is to take the dog for a walk around some local woods. Not only does it give me some exercise, it’s the ultimate de-stressor.
There was so much to see today despite being in the thick of winter. I’ve been granted special permission to bend the rules of the Six on Saturday meme by The Propagator himself. This will give me some time to tidy my garden and find something, or six somethings, to post for another week.
I love the Spindle Tree. The bright pink fruit casings are incongruous in the more subtle colours of a winter woodland.
I have Acer palmatum in pots in my garden but the bright yellow leaves of the native Field Maple hold for a long time and give a really bright glow.
It’s easy to get confused by all the native umbellifers. This one has a lovely pink tinge to its oldest petals.
There’s a hedge I pass on the way to the woods where the top growth always has big fat white berries. This makes it look like a heavy snowfall is sitting on top of the hedge and makes me smile every year.
This is my favourite fern. The mid-green sheeny leaves are awesome.
The moulds growing on the trunk of this Beech Tree match the colour of the turning Euonymus leaves.
So that’s my first Six on Saturday. Please join in to mark the changes in your garden over the year.
