Marshalls still have vegetable plants for sale if you have had any seed raising failures or just want to take a short cut they also have an offer on nematodes
Wonderful photographs Sue.
Thank you, Victoria
Trees are just as impressive in winter, when you can see the structure. I noticed this week the crows are starting to pair up. Every large tree around here seems to be full of them.
I just can't stop myself photographing trees at this time of year, Jessica - especially the really old ones. I bet they have seen some interesting things
Places look so different when the trees have lost their leaves, you get a totally changed view. I really like that third photo.
The photos were taken in the deer park at Wentworth Castle. Jo. You may be able to make out silhouettes on deer on the far left between the trees.
Beautiful photos. The trees look like sentinels watching over the land.
And what stories they could tell, Rachel
And everyone has its own character. Great shots.
Those photos say "Winter" very emphatically. I think Jane would like to make them into rubber stamps for her crafting!
She's welcome to use them Mark. If she wants a better quality image of anything email me.
Wonderful photos Sue, I always feel a bit obsessed with bare trees against the sky every winter. I love them, they're so striking.
So do I CJ
Lovely photos, especially the light in the first one. Recognising trees by their bare form rather than their leaves is a skill all its own: somehow their individual growth structure makes them real characters!
I like the different bark textures too sweffling
Thank you Endah. Do the trees in your part of the world have times when they don;t have any leaves?
Nice images Sue - these shots show what I love about trees and what had me sitting in fields drawing them as a teenager :-)
I took lots of tree photos when I was teaching to use in art lessons with the children, Shirl
Trees are majestic with or without leaves.....
Especially the ancient ones Bangchik
Ah yes....winter does has such beauty too. I really enjoyed looking at these magnificent trees.xxx
Nature is a clever artist, Snowbird
From south africa. I thoroughly enjoy your blogs, takes me back to dad's allotment outside London during and after the war! Your pics both avian and floral are superb, particularly liked the bare trees against winter sky. We enjoy the birds in our large garden here even the hadida ibis who seem to require no sleep!
Hello Diana and welcome thank you for leaving a comment. I'm glad that you find our blogs enjoyable. I have a friend who lives in Gauteng in S Africa. I'm guessing the ibis keep you awake!
It's surprising what amazing shots you can produce even in the dreary dead months of January.
