Lines, pimples, freckles and frills

Photo archives:

It’s been a lovely sunny day but, being greedy, it just made me long for summer warmth and colour, so here’s a little of what I could find to add cheer and warmth.  For a number of years I let the greenhouse run riot and enjoyed close up investigation of its inhabitants.

  1. Your images are great. Found you from a linkback on my blog. Love the spotted kumquat, and the cells in the green leaf up there–name escapes me at the moment. But my very favorite is the passion flower. You have quite a green thumb! Especially this time of winter! BW (Next time you visit, leave me a comment!)

    • Thanks so much for visiting and for accepting the ping back. Plants have two possibilities, either to thrive or fall over, I reckon, so I try to think positive. This mass of flowers became sort of self supporting as a bio-mass as it were and needed less watering and care than you would think. Sorry to say it isn’t growing at the momet. The photos are from 4-5 years ago and in the spring and summer, and are from the archive of our photos which I’m trying to sort out. This far north in England is too cold in an unheated greenhouse for more than the most hardy of plants – there’s just not enough light at this time of year either, I’m afraid. Thanks again for visiting – I’ve left a comment on your site today, as it happens 😉
