Here at Poggio Monte February is nearly upon us again. Year after year I associate this time as being one of the harshest periods of winter. Cold northerly winds sweep across the land married with sleety rains.. Spring even now is contemplating her return, ready to wow us with her technicolored floral explosion. However here at Poggio Monte Winter has a surprise up its sleeve. Whilst out walking today I was amazed at the abundance of flowers braving this hardest of periods, delicate flower heads still displaying after a strong nights wind. pointing their flowery heads sunwards. I hope you enjoy my photos even though the quality is not that great ( phone Camera ). I would be interested in seeing your winters displays too.
