As Midwinter approaches I’ve decided to try and find as many bright colours in Nature as I can, and have therefore launched a mini-series of ‘Winter Brights’ to post now and again through the rest of December and January. There might not be that many but I’ll give it a go.
This is a photograph I took in the garden this week of a sprig of Cotoneaster. This single branch has somehow rooted itself under paving but it is the brightest coloured plant in the garden at present. The leaves are quite tiny and very glossy and they have turned lovely colours of reds, pinks and oranges.
