This so called winter has been ridiculous to date, chilly tonight though!
Beautiful photos! About the last one, is that a painted wall with peeling paint? Very curious! I wish you continued winterless weather.
A tree with peeling bark, actually.
You found lots of colour. It's much colder here today and there is some snow around. I don't know what that will do to the premature spring bulbs and blossom!
Love the fungi foto!
Ah, the wonders of nature! Snowdrops always make me weak at the knees.
Beautiful, - fills me with longing. Tender flowers and such gorgeous greenery. We have a continual foggy mist that fills the valley from top to bottom. Enjoy the loveliness....
How can you have flowers in bloom and green things around at this time of year!? You're a long way north of us!
Wet and green sounds wonderful John .... every thing here is brown and dry. Great pic of fungi near the moss tree trunk
So enjoyed a look of the natural beauty that surrounds your area. Your photos are great! -- barbara
Lovely flowers and macro shots!
This are a sight for sore eyes! I feel like winter has just begun and I am ready for some color. I especially like that last shot...all the colors and textures.
These are wonderful images found on a winter's day. Love each view and am blown away by the fungus. Wow!
Snowdrops and blossoms=winter? I guess so in England.Cold enough for squeaky snow here.Really like the last photo.
Wauu… You have yet so lovely nature. Here all are under much snow.. )These photos are lovely.
These all seem like indicators of spring approaching John, that must be a welcome sight :) The last shot with the tree bark and ivy is a delightful mixture of texture and colour!
These are lovely!=)
Fungi and flowers....it's been awhile in my neck of the woods.
Hm, looks like spring, not winter. You have a wonderful eye for color and details.
I share the similar weird winter scenes with you here in Japan. Over the years, strange landscape with unusually early blooms of Ume blossoms (which look like the fourth image) or still lingering colored leaves was reported. It had been so warm unusually; it did feel so comfortable but didn’t feel right. Suddenly weather became wintry about a week ago and now it’s freezing cold. Snowfall caused transport chaos in Tokyo but will keep nature in order. Wish you a happy, healthy year.Yoko
A fantastic collection of photos :)
