    A species tulip. Like the species crocuses they are in bloom long before the large cultivated ones. I managed to catch this one in a race against the morning sun, which was slowly passing across the bloom. But I like the result.

        I cropped this one for my 366, but I also love the original - I can lose myself in its flame colours. The bush is in the corner of the front garden where I can see it from the window. If only it retained these colours all summer - glorious.

          No-one has been interested in the old birdbox for years, so I bought a spanking new one. Taken!

              Nag, nag, nag, Ivy- more photos! Love the saga of the young blackbird - had a robin as friendly as that. Keep up the good work.

                Nag duly noted. Noiw the 366 is finished I'll have more time for the garden, Paul.

                    WOW! Methinks this is amongst the best butterfly photos I've seen Ivy. Nicely done mate!

                              Just a starling, Paul. The wretched current generation wipe the bird table clean in a matter of seconds at the moment. But the adult, like this one, is full of irridescent colours seen close-up.

                                These saxifrages really are a joy, evergreen with neat low cushions throughout the year, and then in bloom they just blaze with colour.
