Estate Agent, Bud and Bee

18 Feb

Passing an estate agent’s office today, my attention was drawn to the pigeon (Thanks John!)  apparently choosing a property. His mate was there too but went further in before I could get the photo.

It was such a beautiful afternoon, I went to our nearest garden, Burncoose Nursery, for a walk hoping that the Magnolias might be in flower. They weren’t but the furry buds are looking very promising. I’ll go back again soon.

The Snowdrops were still pretty but in their last throes, the Daffodils had their heads bent, ready to flower soon and the Primroses were delicately lovely – but all were eclipsed by the Camellias which were in magnificent bloom. In one blossom, high up, I spotted my first Bee of the season. Not sure whether to be happy about that as tonight’s temperatures are forecast to fall again and I would hate it to be caught out.

I’ll show you more photos next Saturday. To be going on with, here is one of the Camellias.

    The Camellias are fantastic this year, so full of flowers. And I love the furry magnolia bud – they feel like velvet.

    Thank you Sally – lovely post as always. What a beautiful bird – makes me think of the dove of peace.

      Of course it is! I’ll go in and edit! Don’t know what I was thinking of. 🙂 🙂
