Frogs and lungs

The frog spawn has arrived, about a week later than last year – and it had only just been laid, with frogs still around.  Last year we were worrying whether there would be enough water!

In flower and spreading very slowly is lungwort, pulmonaria officinalis.  It is officinalis because it has been used for medicinal purposes for treatment of chest problems, although there is no evidence that this works.
