Post a beautiful nature picture

You must live in a sheltered place.

Suburban garden. The heliotrope used to be under the canopy of a copper beech out front. I pollarded the beech last year, so it is still there but the canopy isn't. I suspect the heliotrope thinks it still is. Except of course, thinking about it, it flowers in December when there are no leaves anyway. Hmm. There will be cuckoo flower, bluebells and green alkanet later.

The primroses grow out of the edges of the path and raised beds. We mow round them. January is pretty early for them. I wonder if this one got surprised when it was frosty last week. It was milder earlier.

We don't do gardening, only demolition.

That bird is looking at you like, “Hey, can’t a bird have a little privacy here?” Looks like a dirty look to me.  Love it.

Thanks Betty. This is a few years back but now we have a proper winter back this year.

The snow in your image is so pristine...it looks like pillows to sink into.

I thought they looked like white wooly sheep sleeping.

My "friend" likes my plum tree and is back, unfortunately, very often, but now he does not like to pose for me anymore😔

We've had a really cold spell this week, and I took this photo yesterday of these amazing icicles in trees.

Another recent photo  - some welcome winter colour. The common name of these fungi is scarlet elf cup.

Hi,

 

I'm new to the discussions section of Alamy and this is my first post. One of my favourite views - it's never the same twice. The Taf estuary in Laugharne (pronounced Larne), Camarthenshire, Wales.

The icycles look like they could be in my neighborhood. The fungi looks like some exotic fruit rinds. Really pretty and interesting.

Fresh from the herb-bed about 20 minutes ago, snowdrops, galanthus nivalis presumably.
