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.
P.S. *** I have a Guest Post over at Choc Chip’s blog while she’s doing her exams http://gobakeyourself.wordpress.com/ Pop over and have a look. I just love Uru’s blog. She’s only 17 and just look at what she does !
