A pretty shrub to brighten up the garden in the bleak of midwinter is Jasminum nudiflorum, commonly known as Winter Jasmine.
You may well think it ordinary, but do you know of the interesting history it has?
More often than not these days I find myself snapping away with the camera, when I really should be gardening!
I like the blurry effect these two photos have taken on.
You could compare the yellowness of the Jasmine to a Summer's day - William Shakespeare Sonnet 18.
Happy St Valentines Day!
