A photo a day - March.

Due to time pressures I'm going to collect my photos and post them on a monthly basis still mainly in and around my own garden and occasionally our close by 4 acre nature reserve wild flower meadow.
So this post will now be covering all of March.

March turned a bit warmer. Parts of the country facing water shortages.

This  shrub covered in red berries all winter now being stripped. March 1

An unidentified small flower ( so far )  March 2

Crambe cordifloria. New growth showing. ( Compare Jan 7th)    March 3 

I've signed up for a Lichen identification workshop ( for beginners ) this weekend. I may be able to tell you more about this one soon. March 4

That goes for this specimen shown on a sliver of bark taken from a dead branch in the garden so I could see it under a microscope. See below. March 5

This is not a very good photo but helps a little in trying to see the detail of the structure of the vegetation. I'm trying to find an adaptor to fit on the microscope to make photography easier. March 6
