02/12/16 Around and about

Maximum temperature 12C, minimum -2C. 26km/h NE wind.  Frost this morning but no rain.
Winter wheat stretching across in the distance.

Tree full of mistletoe.

Mistletoe close up

Common buzzard.

A rare green fern, most are already brown and dormant waiting for spring.

A very Christmas like fir tree.

On someones gate post - the gardening duck :)

Yet another inquisitive sheep!

There are a lot of old tractors still at work in this area.

Red Admiral looking a little the worse for wear but amazing seeing them in December.

The rose is still surviving despite this mornings frost.

Not sure what this is, I have blown up the flower and added to the corner in case someone should recognise it.

  4. Love the gardening duck. Is mistletoe considered an invasive parasite there? It wipes out the oak in AZ.

    1. Thanks Gaelyn but I really cannot answer you question. It seems to invade certain trees but I have never seen it in oak here. There is though quite a bit of it around. I would say that ivy here is a far bigger problem then mistletoe. Keep well Diane
