Wildflower Wednesday – late December 2014

IMG_5613

The last Wildflower Wednesday of the year features photos actually taken on a rather grey looking Monday.  Despite the gloom, however, a number of white blooms were showing up well – Daucus carota,IMG_5584

Winter heliotrope, Petasites fragransIMG_5588

and the odd slightly tatty looking chamomile.IMG_5609

More ‘sunny’ (I wish!) a good showing of broomIMG_5604

much rarer, a single thrift flower still showing some colour against the papery remains of many others.IMG_5608

But to end on a more forward looking note – amongst fierce looking thorns on the dog rose, new buds peeping.  Roll on spring!IMG_5596

With thanks as ever to Gail at Clay and Limestone for hosting the Wildflower Wednesday meme.
