A Day of Two Halves - Heather & Snowdrops

The first half of today was freezing cold and grey as I tidied up my winter flowering heather.  I have a range of colours,

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!
