but my favourite is this grey, white one - it has an antique patina and lovely layering to the flowers.
During a coffee break, to try and get the feeling back in my finger tips, I couldn't resist gathering all the lovely flower heads to make a 'heather tapestry'.
Their tiny flowers look so complex close up, almost like a dicentra.
The second half of the day was glorious sunshine and blue skies with flocks of geese flying over, buzzards squeeching and plenty of snowdrops to harvest.
..... I think I liked the second half best!
