My birthday today and it’s Easter Sunday so I was determined to get out of the house and enjoy the Spring weather.
The sun is just starting to get warm but today the clouds kept scudding across and the wind was a bit ‘more January than April’! That said, when I got out of the wind it was pretty warm and there were even a few bumblebees and a lone Peacock butterfly fluttering around. Hairy Violets seem to be starting and the orchids are getting easier to spot in the flattened grass.
I was determined not to map orchids but I couldn’t help just having a quick look as I came back. I found a few and took some photos of a few typical plants.
