    1. Thank you for your comment, Masha. I think it’s the quality of the light as well that gives us such joy when looking at flowers – and especially the thought of approaching springtime!

  1. Lovely photos – what are the flowers in numbers 3 and 6. Number 6 reminds me of purple toothwort which I found in France (it can be found in Britain) which I called the mystery purple flower before I eventually tracked it down.

  2. lovely to see England’s early spring flowers whilst we the other end of the world in AUS swelter in sauna like conditions.

    1. Well, here we are still experiencing very cold conditions and frost on the cars! Jamie has just planted some snowdrops in the front garden – courtesy of Farnborough Hall National Trust property where he volunteers on the gardening team. These photos were taken on my mobile phone by Abigail and that’s why they’re so good…. I should have credited her in the captions!
