Though we are in the middle of winter there are still some brave plants and bushes that are producing the odd blossom. It makes me smile to discover blossoms that forgot that it is winter and time to hibernate.

And because we are back into a dry patch the cloudless morning sky produces that horizon of peach and blue.

We need the fragments of colour to nurture us on the short days of winter.
