Contrast, Bee and An Anniversary

15 Jan

The contrast between the red holly berries and the white and green of the Periwinkle drew my eye on our walk today.

I was very surprised to see a bee on flowers as we came up the hill.

We moved into this house twelve years ago today so we are having a special meal and we have Daffodils on the table. It had taken us 40 years to finally get back home!
When we arrived twelve years ago and had a Chinese takeaway sitting on the dining room floor (the furniture was due to arrive the next morning) our lovely new neighbour popped in with a bunch of Cornish Daffodils in a jam jar and promptly joined us on the floor! That was the beginning of a very lovely friendship and we feel so very lucky to have moved in next door.

      I love them so! They are only ยฃ1 for a bunch of 17 (I know – a very strange number!) and I buy them every week for the season. ๐Ÿ™‚

    Lovely simple flowers of the white Periwinkle. Is the white as invasive as its cousins?
    We have had early bees through December and continuing into January. Every one a welcome visitor!

      The white Periwinkle isn’t ours so I’m not sure about its behaviour. Lovely to know that there are some bees around. ๐Ÿ™‚
