Seed head

The path below the orchard and above the olive grove is full of orchids and all kinds of bright flowers.

This seed head wasn’t very obvious, low in the grass.

I had no idea quite how beautiful it would be under the microscope.

The problem with the arrival of Spring is that you realise just how much there is to do in the garden and are forced to accept there’s no time to do it in.

The weeds seem to have had a good time this winter; there’s more greenery in the gravel of the courtyard than I’ve ever seen before.

There are clumps of couch grass in the flower beds that bring up more soil than I can lift.

Groundsel, of which there is masses this year, is easier to pull up.

However its seed heads, beautiful though they are, just mean more work further down the line!
