In the Pink

No walk in the park for us today, as we had our little bit of 'social responsibility' to perform and took our friend Winnie to vote before voting ourselves on the way back.  While at Winnie's though, I was delighted to spot a lone Camellia flower had burst into bloom, despite the damp, cold and foggy conditions.  A little splash  of pink perfection in an otherwise grey day.
Another splash of bright colour was to be found the other day around the lakes of Straw's Bridge.  The fruits of the Guelder-rose (Viburnum opulus) bushes are always a joy to see shining bright red in the sunshine.
Nice to look at, each fruit is a 'drupe' containing a single seed which is designed to be dispersed by birds.
