Blooms in all the right places

Wednesday, April 10, 2019

I look at trees with a sharper eye this time of year. The little gap between stark skeletal emptiness and full leafage is likely to be filled by curiosity. Tree flowers! Some are weird and wonderful, others are beautiful but many are downright almost invisible and hard to spot. The variety is surprising.

Seeing hedges come back to life is a joy as it gives a screening back to fields and birds will be wanting to hide their nests away.

Dropped catkins and sticky buds.

Above, my focus is out but the thought was there.
Red dead nettles above, lesser celandine out below


More ground ivy, Such bold pricks of blue


And still echos of summers past linger on.

Take care,
Sophie

  1. I do love it when you can see all the new growth before a dense coverage makes that harder!

  2. Such an exciting time of year, we have a duck nest in the pond, bubs threatening to blossom on the tree, forsythia in bloom, and a lawn full of plants I don't know the name of, although you named red dead nettles for me :)
