Warm Plant Personalities

Ok, so plants don't have personalities, strictly speaking, but a few on Welkinweir's grounds have really been brightening up my days lately with brilliant yellows, oranges, and even purple.  


European beech

Cutleaf Japanese maple

Next to the estate house, a bed of fothergilla and oakleaf hydrangea is positively stunning when the sunlight hits it.  It's a little hard to capture the effect on camera, so I opted for some close-ups too.

Fothergilla 


Hydrangea quercifolia 'Alice'

Hydrangea quercifolia 'Little Honey'

Come visit!  Looks like the sun will be out next week.  http://welkinweir.org/
