Anemone bud

I was afraid the drought last summer might have affected the anemones which make a splash of brilliant colour every winter.

But I was relieved to notice leaves appear towards the end of the autumn …

… and then today I saw flower buds!

You can tell this flower will be purple even though it’s just a furry nose peeping out of the greenery.

A ladybird wakes from hibernation

This ladybird had a good spot to hibernate in, tucked in the axle of a clematis stem.

It was just stirring sleepily when I saw it.

It will have felt the warmth of the sun, like the fat flower buds around it which will open soon.
