Busy bees

posted in: General

Winter Aconites are one of my favourite flowers and the bees like them too. We have a large patch of them right outside our back door. Despite very frosty nights there has been a little warmth in the sun during the day and this spot gets the sun full on it by mid morning. Yesterday a few bees were stretching their wings and enjoying what the Aconites had to offer. One of them looks as if it is about to curl up for a snooze in one of the flowers in the fourth photo.

Blue, blue day!

Beautiful ‘blue’ sky day on Sunday – but husband’s camera took a silly turn and made every photo appear rather too blue! Problem now rectified.

We had a superb walk and then called in at Innerpeffray to see the snowdrops. Absolutely magnificent right now, especially along the path to the library. Where the new path down to the river has been created, and the trees cleared, the banks of snowdrops that were previously almost hidden from view can now be seen.
