This is part of a big clump of Mahonia media growing near our back gate, the flowers are particularly good this year. Tucked in the corner I’ve put a wee shot of snowdrops poking their heads through the soil, so pleased to see them.
It’s been a dull day but mild with no wind. I went out for a walk & met a neighbour who’s had more than her fair share of bad luck over the years but always had a smile. She introduced me to her newish ‘boyfriend’ who’s the same age as me! Does that make me a girl? I wish! It’s lovely to see her happy, even their dogs get on well.
