Snakes alive!!

Well not real snakes, but our Snake’s Head Fritillaries (Fritillaria meleagris) have healthy flower buds.

Depending on the weather they could be flowering this month instead of April – is this a record?


Spring, Summer, Spring

Everything springing forward. Primroses all over the wood, banks and lawn  – just like weeds. Wood anemones, violets in abundance and bluebells just starting.  First orange tip and brimstone butterflies in the last few days.  Plum trees in flower.  Great time of year. Now hope the cold weather and frost doesn’t cause any damage.

I know we need the rain – but not only did it rain – it snowed.
