A Splash of Early Yellow

Yesterday afternoon brought bright Sunshine but a cold breeze kept the temperature down. A quick look across the fields showed a clear view of the nodding donkey at an oil well about 2km away:

It was a bit exposed there so we nipped back to have a look in the village churchyard where the Winter Aconite were showing well:

I am usually photographing these in mid February.

  2. Aconite like to grow around things...usually trees I find. Well, I suppose, what else would they grow round?

  3. They are out in my front garden as well John but not as many as here - what a splendid photograph.

    1. Weaver: I am quite jealous having tried and failed three time to get some to grow in my garden. They have been growing in the graveyard for many ears and spread a bit further each year.

  4. Lovely to see the aconites flowering - one of my favourites :) Must try and get to some Gardens near me to see if they are flowering there yet.

  5. Nice images of the aconites, John. I have childhood memories of it growing under a plum tree growing up a house wall. I keep meaning to add them to my garden as they are such cheery plants - maybe this year I will (if the ground is soft enough). We have snow here and the ground is hard just now with temps expected to stay low well into next week. On the positive, the bird feeders will see a lot of action :-)
