To complete this group of photos for Jan 2012 I had to take three of them whilst on holiday in the lovely ancient city of Worcester whilst on a walk along the river side. In fact they could all have been taken in or near our own garden.They were the three for 26th, 27th and 28th.
Teasels, Dipsacus fullonum. Growing on the banks of the River Severn. Flowers in July and August leaving these dry spiky involucral bracts. 26 Jan
Sticky buds on a Horse - Chestnut. Aesculus hippocastanum. Flowers in May /June. 27 Jan
Mahonia aquifolium, flowering in Dec to May has attracted a Bumble bee. About a week ago I saw a Bumble bee in our garden on one of the flowers shown earlier. 28 Jan
An early sun rise after a cold night with a clear sky. 29 Jan
There were a number of small white feathers lying on the plants in the garden and on the lawn so perhaps the remains of a pigeon. 30 Jan
Possibly Wall Screw- moss, Totula muralis Pottiaceae 31Jan
