Astrantia – mini sculptures

I just love these little flowers!  They make a stunning show, the colours and shades are so beautiful and the combination of leaves and flowers is beautiful.  To have a second show at this time of year is a real bonus too.

Berries are looking good!

The pyracantha berries are looking good, lovely shades of red and orange / yellow.  The birds must have lots of food around at the moment because they haven’t started on these yet.  Good, I can admire them for a few more weeks!

The sorbus tree at the front has HUGE white berries that are almost as large as moth balls (does anyone else remember those?).  The tree is young and the branches are weighed down so I have cut some of the bunches off.
