A new leaf or two.

Yesterday was freezing and grey first thing. But the skies turned bright blue as I went for a late morning walk along the quay. The orange witch hazel has new growth popping out all over.

The frost was melting, making some lovely droplets on the leaves.

I think this has to be my favourite plant to photograph.

The orange is just so vibrant.

Touches of green of the grass and lichens make for interesting contrasts.

The beauty berry bush is another favourite at this time of the year.

Again the droplets and the backgrounds add some lovely shapes.

The range of red to pink to purple is amazing.

Interesting how some of the berries are clusters and other solitary.

As I came back along the quay the fog rolled in...loved this patch of sunlight on the water the fog closed up over the sun as I took the photo but you can just see the outline if you look close, it is just to the left below the pale blue patch.
