Evening Snowdrops

Spring is here

Every year we wait for the snows to melt around the end of March and for the snowdrops, that have been waiting below, to emerge and start to flower. Every year, I say that I have enough photographs of snowdrops to last a lifetime and then  …  well, in this case, and then glorious warm evening sublight happens and here are the 2020 snowdrops to enjoy.

From the Archives – 1 Feb 20

From the Archives

Some weeks, because the weather has been poor, or the artistic skills of the photographer have not risen to the expected dizzy heights … or for some other reason there are few or no new images to share. A perfect opportunity to delve in the archives …

Spring around here is still two to three months away – so, to cheer us all up as we look out on boundless vistas of cold snow, here is a memory of spring 2014.

New England Asters

Asteraceae

It’s remarkable how many of the wild Asters there are in this part of the world and we are encouraging them in our garden.  This is a “New England Aster” (Symphyotrichum novae-angliae) which we culled from the wild as it was growing on a roadside verge that was due to be mown. It is now the founding father of a colony we hope to encourage on our small nature sanctuary.
