This is a fennel plant in the winter.
Isn’t summer great?
We usually let the fennel go to seed and then hang around for most of the winter to feed the birds.
Another shot from December 2011.
I am in the field and totally off the grid for most of July, so my responses to comments will be interrupted.

Thank you Mario. The colours are what attracted my lens.
