Wednesday 6 April

Mild again and perfect for a walk to the Lower Burgh Meadow.

Brooklime leaves - Veronica beccabunga near the Big Lodge

Cherry flowers on my tree at home.

Plenty of blossom as always so there will be lots of cherries for the birds and some for us.

Colt's-foot leaves - Tussilago farfara just appearing as the flowers are fading.

Common Dog Violet - Viola riviniana

Flowering Currant - Ripes sanguineum this was hanging over the dog kennels wall, but it does grow wild in lots of places thanks to the birds.

Ground Ivy - Glechoma hederacea

 Hawthorn buds - Crataegus monogyna

  1. OK- I'm completely on spring overload. I'm still hunting for any new green sprigs here. Love the Arum.


Let me know you looked in :)
