Stunning colours, Julia.
Hi Brian, I have tried twice to comment on your Long Tailed Tit post, wordpress is sending me in a loop, literally! They visit us here too, we also have a pair of Jackdaws, your design of feeder look as if it would do the job of keeping them off. Apologies too if you now have several comments from me on Long tailed Tits on your blog!
Hi Julie. Your comments arrived ok, thanks. Jackdaws were the reason I bought the feeder cage to keep them off the fat balls.
This brightens a gray morning. Lovely photo Julie.
We have had a beautiful spirit lifting sunny day here Susie, I hope you get some winter sunshine soon too.
Wonderful. I thought that it was Cornus sanguinea ‘ Midwinter Fire’ at first, the colour is so intense.
Me too, until I got up close to read the label. Kew are brilliant at labelling. We visited a National Trust property in the summer, which had a note up saying they were not labelling anymore as the labels were being removed by visitors. There are so many new cultivars and plants around now that I need a label and feel quite irritated when I can’t identify something.
That is really annoying. I need labels too. Maybe they should design electrified ones so you can read but not touch and certainly not steal!
LOL, I can’t imagine why folk would want to steal the label unless they took the plant as well. I don’t want to go around a garden in a fuzz of isn’t that nice but no clue what it is. There is another NT garden near here which sells a programme with numbers on and then you match the number to the plant, which is someway to helping but even that is annoying.
Wonderful colours. So fiery.
I’d quite like one for my own garden, although it was labelled ‘Salix Alba’, the following cultivar name was missing. I might have to buy more than one! 😉
That sounds reasonable!
Love the complexity and the detail in your image…Very artsy.
Thanks Charlie, we’ve been lucky to enjoy some winter sunshine here today, I hope the weather is kind to you too.
What a radiant sight. Thank you.
Hi Cynthia, I’d like to grow more winter stems here, any glimmer of sunshine and they are so cheery on a winters day.
Love the bark
Me too Donna, colourful winter stems are invaluable for bringing some extra cheer.
Beautiful winter color – though first I thought it was Cornus.
Me too, luckily it was labelled. I want to add more winter stems here, they are so joyful.
Absolutely stunning – just planted one this year and now I’m positively glowing in anticipation 🙂
