Home Patch: Remnants, Fragments ... and New Shoots
There was very little of colour or novelty value in the garden yesterday ... but then my eyes alighted on our small cherry tree. How lovely to see buds in November! I hope they will survive our frosts.

A single hoverfly was sunning itself on a leaf.
