Autumn Cherry, again.
Moar photos of that there Autumn Cherry which I promised a while ago…
I finally managed to get some photos of the Autumn flowering cherry… it’s so hard at the moment that I think I might give up until the sun is higher again or bring some branches indoors to photograph instead. The privet hedge behind the cherry casts shadow, so the little light this garden receives over winter is lessened even more so and makes it very difficult to get nice photos of these blooms.
*note to self for future reference – don’t buy a tiered garden, or if you do only buy one on the side of a hill that gets sunlight in winter. It can get really depressing in this house for a couple of months until the sun finds its way back into the lower levels of the house. At the moment we only get it in the bathroom and spare room. I’m someone who needs sunlight otherwise I can get down in the dumps.
Then, later on I was upstairs and noticed the sun shining into the rooms. I ran downstairs to get some shots of the cherry again in the hope the sun would now be shining on the tiny blooms.
This set is an improvement; although not much. The sun just doesn’t reach the blooms that I can get to.
Can you believe these are the first photos I’ve taken in December??! It’s been 2 weeks since I last uploaded any photos off my camera. I’m shocked.
Walking the garden and I discovered either Snowdrop or Tete-a-tete leaves just peeping out of the soil… Then bringing in the bin I also noticed the hybrid bluebells are all coming up in the front garden!!! Oh my, that’s very unusual. After all, they don’t bloom until April/May.
So, how are everyone’s christmas preparations going? I don’t have my tree yet although I have slowly been tidying up ready for it to be put up; just need to motivate myself to go out and buy a tree now. I’ve been considering getting a smaller one this year… I’m not sure if I have the motivation for a larger one – but know I’ll regret it if I do.
