Greening up at Barleycorn.

Fresh new foliage of a silver birch tree

Colourful, fragrant wallflowers

What a lovely collection of photgraphs. I love Honesty and the seed head are wonderful.

Thanks, Ruth,I love them too. Sometimes called the coin flower, because of the similarity of the seed head to a coin,I read that the seed heads are known as the Pope's money, as he's not allowed to carry any!

You must be farther ahead than we are here in Ohio. We were hit by two or three weeks of freezing temps after things started to grow. That set us back a bit. We are just now getting back to where we were then. I like you photographs and the surroundings.

Did I tell you that I joined, years ago, the National Wildlife Federation. I think it is the name. Anyway, my backyard is registered as a wildlife habitat and sanctuary. My number is 6769. They are up in the thousands now.

Thank you for visiting my blog.

I'm not surprised your garden is a wildlife sanctuary, as you take photographs of beautiful birds, insects, spiders and animals, and they wouldn't come if it wasn't appealing to them. Thanks for the visit, Abe, and for your comments.
