If you just took those, you MUST be having a really unusual winter!
We miss our Winter Jasmine, Vicki. When we lived in Cornwall, we had it lighting up the front of the cottage at this time of year.
An "endless" beauty around your place!
6000 of a million, each word is more beautiful than the next. And, in this case, quite unnecessary.
Noneed for words... Thse pictures are gorgeous..JJRod'z
sigh just a little bit of beauty this morning...
I took those yesterday. The winter jasmine (yellow flower) and the hellebore (purple flower) always bloom this time of year, even when it's really cold. But it's going to be in the high sixties tomorrow -- which is definitely not usual.
Isn't nature wonderful? Color and beauty at a time that could be gray and cold.
Comforting heralds of spring!Siberian air mass hovering over our area, giving us blue skies but icy temperatures.
You're right -- your photos are six thousand words! -- barbara
No winter here, either, darn it. Those are beautiful photos, they speak for themselves!
At least six thousand.
Love those red stemmed shrubs. And the light in all these photos is wonderful.
Can you believe this weather? Quite a bit different from last year. As for your last photo of the brown leaf. I never can tell if it's a chestnut oak, a chinkapin oak (don't think so), or actually a chestnut. We have some young chestnut trees that produce leaves before they succumb to the blight. They're sprouts off of old root stock. Would love to resurrect those old trees.
This year we had three seasons: first autumn, then spring followed by another autumn and now finely snow and ice for the first time since last year February. It's very, very cold.
