Drips, A Present and A Walk

20 Mar

1   There was a very heavy frost this morning , the first day of Spring, and as it melted, it dripped from the fennel in one of our chimney-pot planters.

2   Lovely friends came round for supper last night and brought this beautiful primrose which will be planted out near the new Silver Birch. As M said, one can never have too many primroses and that is so right!

3   We stomped around The Great Flat Lode this afternoon.  Beautiful moss, bark, views, reflections in muddy puddles and near the end, a bank of opening Lesser Celandines. I love the auburn outside of the petals which almost matches the dry autumny leaves. This beautiful flower is also known as Spring Messenger which is just the perfect name for a flower I found today.

      I loved that too! I saw the drips when I went down early to make the tea, it being my turn, and went out in bare feet and PJs to get that shot! 🙂

        You have already too generous with your dandelions, so I will pass up the primroses. 🙂
