Something simpler this morning as we walked around the remains of Shipley Hall. Looking for colourful blooms to share with you, it is easy to overlook the colours of the foliage. My eye was drawn to this magnificent Yew tree (Taxus baccata).
in fact edible, sweet and (supposedly) very tasty. Certainly the birds like them!
Do you remember the Young Larch cones I featured some weeks ago? Well, returning to the same tree this morning we found the cones filling out and maturing nicely.
really look gorgeous in the sun, but the storm clouds were gathering and a few spots were falling on us by this stage so we decided to cut our walk short and head for home.
