spring flowers

The daffodil season is at its height now. These impressive double daffodils are growing wild at Old Mill but may well be a long established garden escapee. Greater periwinkle (vinca major) is adding vivid blue to the banks and hedgerows. It is a native species but seems to like growing near gardens as here in Tokenbury.

Finally, the exotic flower of rosemary, growing in a pot (!), only to demonstrate how elaborate small flowers can be.

I need to enjoy all the greenery through you... We had flurries this week and all is still brown on the island... Good thing we shot down to Florida for a few days of warmth! Tara
