Keep Hope Alive

Raw December, grey weather. Near-incessant rain. Now a forecast of snow. Yet a brief filter of sunlight lit up a corner of the garden, warming the bricks.

Closer. Seeds. The promise of Spring.


Angel’s Trumpet

It’s been raining so much lately and the mornings and evenings are dark. So the best way to photograph flowers was to head to a conservatory.

I found these: Brugmansia (or angel’s trumpet). I’d never seen them or heard of them before. Showy yet understated; subtle festoons of pale yellow. Each one a silent angel’s trumpet…

Here’s a link to the RHS for more information. I’m just going to let the pictures speak for themselves.
