missed out on yesterday’s walk, but managed one this morning.
Brimstones dancing in the sunshine… at first there was just the one… then we saw groups of them… absolutely wonderful.
Catkins everywhere… of course… and trees are showing signs of new life.
Also lots of small flowers primroses, violets etc etc in the hedgerows and the gorse is covered with blooms.
The predominant colour is yellow… perhaps to attract the starving insects…
My tiny patch of weed/lawn is covered in white daisies, just to be different.
My evergreen clematis still has some flowers (yellow) but mostly covered in seedheads now, which will be tasty for the birds.
Roses are showing leaf buds and some have flower buds as well (doubt those will open though, been too chilled)
I’m confident that spring, if not actually sprung, is gathering itself for a great leap forward…
