mahonia “winter sun”

apologies for not posting some garden images sooner…I’ve been away for a week (lovely time!) however i photographed this image before i left………..

its of my gorgeous mahonia plant with its ornamental evergreen (very spikey) leaves and its beautiful lily of the valley scented flowers which flower in early spring and smell particularly strong in the evening. once the flowers have passed, deep purple berries develop in the summer. i have done absolutely nothing with this plant over the last 12 years but just appreciated its beautiful scented flowers and hoped the kids didn’t eat the berries in the summer (which they haven’t!!!).

now that spring is firmly in the air….i have lots of different plants to photograph in my garden…more to follow. hope you all had a great easter….JXX
