Red Mahonia (4) A gentle walk this afternoon diverted me from my snivelling for a while.  My spirits were lifted by bud upon bud, shoot upon shoot, a sky free from its usual dampening blanket and a camellia looking like an explosion in a Barbie factory.  More healing than a cup of Lemsip (other proprietary cold remedies are obviously available).

This mahonia leaf is a nigh on perfect match to the colour of my nose.  sniff sniff

  1. I hope your snivels are soon gone, husband is also imbibing Lemsips and a cold is not a nice way to start the New Year. Out in my garden today my spirits were lifted by the sight of a Helleborus corsicus, progeny of one that came with me from Yorkshire, lifting its chartreuse creamy flowers to the sun.
