Buds and blossom…

Thankfully, Spring is well and truly here, the weather is typical for March, bright and sunny, but with a cold wind. Earlier this week, we woke up to a covering of snow. Luckily, we didn’t have a repeat of last year and by lunchtime, it had almost gone.

These white flowers are spreading happily in my border, Mr HC has identified them as Alpine Rockcress, I’m not sure where they came from and I’ve not noticed them before this year, but they’re welcome to stay.

    Those little white flowers are just lovely, white like snow but not so nippy ;)

    I love that shot of your chief advisor under the blossom – so sweet. I bet her always agrees to sausage sandwiches.

    Beautiful shots as always, so much to see outdoors at the moment isn’t there? Thanks for joining in xx

    Those larch flowers are gorgeous and I bet easily missed. I also think your Hypericum might actually be a spurge (euphorbia). Be careful with the sap – it can cause blisters on some people. #HDYGG

      Thanks and thanks for identifying the Spurge, I have never been sure what it is.
