A Mass of Wild Flowers

I love this time of year. Everything is springing to life. Frogspawn in the pond, ladybirds making an appearance, buds on the trees and lots of wildflowers - wood anemones, celandines, violets, barren strawberry.

There are thousands of primroses, spreading like wildfire. The conditions must be just right for them.

Harbinger of Spring

The snowdrops are out. Hooray - the first signs of spring!

Snowdrop - Galanthus nivalis
