Flowers and trees
Indoors my hyacinths are just coming into bloom. They are on the kitchen windowsill, something to look at while washing up and more interesting than the rather damp washing hopefully drying outside in the garden.
Outdoors, I walked to the little woodland near home. We call this the bluebell wood and only really visit in April and May. This year I want to take photographs of it throughout the year and on Monday I realised I had almost missed out on January. So here are some photographs from the last day of the month.
I did find some bluebells pushing their shoots up through last years fallen leaves
but the star performer in January was the hazel with masses of yellow catkins catching the low winter sun.
Before I left I took a picture looking up. I love these photographs looking up through the trees and have taken many since seeing Diana's lovely photographs of trees silhouettes against the sky.
