I’ve been dodging rain showers all day. This afternoon it came down to a decision between nipping out to look for a few flowers or going for an immediate dog walk round the village (I couldn’t face a second deep-mud onslaught across the fields today) to miss the rain. Ah, poor dog!
In the meantime I managed to find these floral snippets:
A little bit of beauty: A pristine snowdrop
A little bit out-of-season: Limonium suworowii spikes and the mexican daisies
A little whiff of perfume: Winter honeysuckle and viburnum bodnantense
A whole lot of cheerfulness: Smiling violas and in-your-face polyanthus ‘Firecracker’
And a handful of fresh green: Dianthus ‘Green Trick’
Luckily, the dog and I missed the downpour shortly afterwards, but only just.
