A lovely capture, Colleen. A little red in a field of green can go a long way. What is winter like down there?

On average 5 deg at night and 12-15 during the day. A few days of rain a week followed by a few days of sunshine. Snow on the mountains with good ski resorts about 2 hours drive away.

The bright colour of the opening bud pulls the eye in immediately: pity it's not in your own garden as you could have returned for another view with it full out.
