The sky has been overcast for several days but just occasionally the early morning Sun manages to brighten things up for a few minutes.

The other day when I was reading Tricia's Tales and saw the photo of a Mahonia in flower it reminded me I hadn't really looked at mine for a while as it is in an area of the front garden I seldom visit.
It is not a plant I get very close to unless needed as those pointed leaves seem to be able to penetrate almost any clothing but it nice to see some colour in the Winter.
