The beginnings of Spring

I have a lovely old book; The Country Diary of an Edwardian Lady, which I enjoy looking through to compare what Edith Holden (the author) witnessed each month, compared to what I find.

All the photos below were taken yesterday on my walk; Germander Speedwell, Cowslip, Sloe or Blackthorn flowers, the tortoiseshell Butterfly, Peacock Butterfly (as well as a few other flowers).  In Edith's book these aren't recorded until April.  A sure sign of the changing world we live in - don't you think?

  1. What beautiful photographs, so full of spring! You are a bit further on than we are here, although there are swathes of lush celandine stretching their heads to the sun.
