And another precious sunny day before the storms. It was even quite mild, and again the hens enjoyed being out and about rather than hunkering down near the hen house all the time. Above the Hamnavoe ferry sailing into Stromness from Scrabster in the North of Scotland. A lovely day to arrive in Orkney.
I love the wispy clouds!
And my lovely hellebore! It is the first winter it's managed to survive the gales to flower!
Sadly this miniature iris didn't survive the storms.... it was so pretty too.
And some of the mini daffs. There are various clumps around the garden. They are always the first to flower but even they are early this year. Probably due to such a mild winter (so far!).
Perennials pushing through again - think this is a geranium...
The hens have discovered that plenty of seeds drop from the bird feeder on windy days and they sweep up any the wild birds have missed!
