Some winter wild flowers
This will be a sparsely-worded post as I am still struggling to overcome a flu-type cold I've had, with a stonking temjperature. Just a few photos today from a short walk up the hill last week. Firstly, Cow Parsley in full bloom. There are clumps of young plants everywhere.
On the steep rocky roadside, Shining Cranesbill (and some Navalwort) romp into growth.
Blackberry buds in January! That's a first here.
The first wild Primrose of the season.
Nettle soup anyone?
By our gate, the Honeysuckle I planted has put out fresh growth.
Rambler rose ditto - this is a baby of the Paul's Himalayan Musk.
Sorry to be lightweight today, but I've had so little sleep and my body needs more than cornflakes and water, which is all I've had the past couple of days (oh, and apples too). I have fancied nothing to eat that we have in the house . . .
