December 2nd, we walked from Lowestoft via Gunton Warren, Corton Woods, and Hopton Cliffs to Gorleston (where we watched a ship leave port). Here are some of the flowers and foliage. Variety diminishes as the year slides into winter. But there are yet some surprises.
The stunning foliage of Rosa rugosa that colonises the dunes
Gorse, up close and personal. Okay for you, you’re not getting prickled!
Even before winter’s here, new buds appear
Giving us hope of Life renewed
You expect a Tuesday Treat without fungi? It’s the yellow version of the Turkeytail (apt at this season)
Not a wild plant and neither native. But I couldn’t resist taking the photo
And roses in a garden in December, not sheltered but by the sea. That surprised me
And to acknowledge the season… folks around here have excellent humour. Study it closely; it’s cleverly done.
