Things are really greening up, though it still only feels like early spring. Wood anemones, Wood sorrel, Cuckoo flower and Daffodils all add splashes of welcome colour. Who needs elaborate shades, when simple whites, yellows and delicate pinks can do the job just as well?
The primroses in the hedgerow bank near our house are flowering in prolific profusion.
There are always primroses here. The dappled shade from the hawthorn trees is just the kind of habitat they thrive in. The primroses are one of the few spring flowers that got off to an early start this year, despite our cold spring. So it may be that the surrounding grass isn’t as high as it would normally be.
So the flowers can be seen in all their gorgeous glory. I only wish I could share with you the beautiful, rich scent they were exuding as I took photographs of them this evening.
Would you call the smell of wild garlic “perfume“? Probably not! But it is a beautiful flower.
