I took the dog for a long walk yesterday and took most of these then. Nature’s variety never, ever ceases to amaze and delight me.
Marsh Marigolds by the side of a pond.
By a garden wall, Greater Celandine basks in the sun.
Next, Periwinkle, hiding amid the Ivy.
Holly flowers glow against the dark, gloss of spiky leaves. They’ll be pretty come Christmas, too.
I think this is Dame’s Violet. Please correct me if I’m wrong.
I call them Kamikazi Daffs. They appear in hedgerows, on verges, in the middle of nowhere, you will find a clump of daffs. Never, however, have I ever seen ones like these. Double-bloomed and so heavy they cannot support their own weight. Gorgeous.
Common Comfrey, with its slightly pink flowers and Tuberous Comfrey on the left. It’s Bluebell time and they are everywhere.
It glows against its dark green starting in February.
More Kamikazi Daffs. I have come to look forward to them.

I'm a Canadian who loves our planet and the people living on it. I also love to travel and take pictures. I'd like to think I've improved a little, but am pretty sure there's room to be better.
