Tune into Nature on Lunch Break

On a walk in Cardiff today noticing daffodils about to open, snowdrops (galanthus nivalis) bright in bloom, and some very distinctly patterned bark on a tree I’m not yet able to identify.   

I think it’s really important to tune into the natural world on a lunch break, a short refreshing walk recharges the body and soul!

Birds and the Bees

Noticing today…

  1. My stoic braves – teasel seed heads – surviving the winter.   Teasel feed the bees when in flower and the birds when in seed.  For us humans, they provide architectural beauty in the garden throughout winter.
  2. Achillea still in flower.  The winter has been so mild thus far.
  3. Tree Peony
  4. Pyracantha berries
  5. Hydrangea bud opening
  6. Catkins – two different kinds, I’ve not been able to identify the trees yet!

I am noticing so much growth coming through at this time of year and the colour that exists in small pockets.

Photos today.
