Luscious Lichens

I have been following the creation of the floral quilt by Allison Aller, and recently admired the photos she posted of her lovely garden that is her inspiration. This morning I went to have a look around mine, hoping to find something to bring into the house, but in the depth of winter there are few flowers and little colour in the garden. The promise of Spring is not far away, but there is beauty to be found if one looks carefully. The first three photos are of lichen on tree trunks, followed by seed cones and catkins of an Alnus cordata (Italian Alder), then the early flowering Euphorbia characias 'wulfenii', Heleborus argutifolius ( Corscian Helebore) and some soon to bloom Daffodils.
