It was a bright afternoon after a pleasant morning, and despite a cool breeze it was still a pretty decent day, with plenty of things to see, from a mining bee having a quick rest on the road, to the first appearance of ramson flowers and bluebells in the damp ditch in the cemetery.
The large, lush leaves of the ramsons are an irresistible target for fidgety fingers such as mine and of course I was soon crushing the leaves between my fingers and enjoying the pungent garlic smell these plants are of course known for.
Trouble with this of course is that I then ended up with garlicky fingers for the rest of the afternoon.
Luckily I didn't have a date or anything.

Wow. That beautiful bee was a surprise!ReplyDelete
Great photos. So much to see nature-wise at this time of year. (I'm ecstatic after last night seeing a pair of hedehogs in our garden rather than just the one which we've had sine last year!).ReplyDelete
It's suddenly looking very colourful out there! I managed to fall into a patch of ramsons once.ReplyDelete
Not seen a hedgehog yet, wonder if the mild night will bring them out. Thanks all for commentingReplyDelete
Great colouring Si.ReplyDelete
Lovely set of photos - I always look forward to seeing (and smelling!) Wild Garlic in flower. Can be a wonderful sight en masse especially when mixed with Bluebells :)ReplyDelete
I love wild garlic. It grows in the garden. I add it chopped to salads...delicious.ReplyDelete
Love the bee.
OLur ramsons aren't in bloom yet, though the leaves are everywhere in our woodsReplyDelete
Thank you all! An even bigger adventure today!ReplyDelete
