cornwall in colours: yellow

“Nature looks dead in winter because her life is gathered into her heart.
She withers the plant down to the root that she may grow up again fairer and stronger”
~ Hugh Macmillan

January Gold

Feeling the need for a breath of fresh air we took a wander along the George V Memorial Walk last week to see what, if anything, was in flower.  One hundred photos proved there was a lot to love: not only flowers, but bright new foliage and sublime textures.

The header photograph is of a very pretty wattle which has fabulous almost triangular paired leaves, and really tiny flowers. I have often seen this interesting tree before, but never in flower and wondered what it was: a Gum? a Wattle?  This week it was flowering beautifully – a golden cloud arching over the track and I think it is Acacia pravissima / Wedge-Leaved Wattle

  1. Its been a while since I caught up with your posts Jude. I do love the first flower pink and yellow go extremely well together. Even though being home is the right move, we do miss being back in the UK!! Yes, I know its winter, but still 🙂
