The daffodils are now wilting, the squill / glory of the snows are gone, and crocus is but a memory.
"Garden" type flowers are gone, and more genuinely wild plants have appeared. Today on the park, as chiff chaffs sang deafeningly loudly, marsh marigolds and greater stitchwort have emerged, and lady's smock has been a regular sight for over a week now.
Was listening out for the song of a blackcap, that slightly ill-blown flute sound, but no sign.
It's been a gorgeous day, much filled with walking, running and playing cricket, first time I feel like I've caught the sun! WArm face this evening!
