exposed . This makes the garden and meadow later flowering than more sheltered parts of the island.
Lots of flowers in bud just waiting for some warm sunny weather. Tonight we have have gale force winds and torrential rain
Although these Buttercups are an absolute nuisance in the garden, I still can't help loving their beautiful shining cups.
In the meadow they can grow to their hearts content
Sow Thistle is a good plant for bees and insects.
Supposedly was used in the past for controlling fevers and high blood pressure. In the kitchen added to stews as a pot herb ,although I've not tried this one myself.
Just when I was thinking not much colour in the meadow yet I found this little Viola peeping at me through the grass.
I love Welsh Poppies usually they are a beautiful sharp clean yellow but all mine are orange.I must try and get some seed for the yellow one.
This is the first of the White Campions that I added last Autumn .These are very short but I will add better photos of them later
