Some early April flowers


I am fortunate enough to be in England now that April’s here.

Sweet Violet

O, to be in England
Now that April 's there,
And whoever wakes in England
Sees, some morning, unaware,
That the lowest boughs and the brushwood sheaf
Round the elm-tree bole are in tiny leaf,
While the chaffinch sings on the orchard bough
In England—now!
Robert Browning – “Home Thoughts, from Abroad”


Veronica (Speedwell)

Wood Forget-me-nots

Maple foliage (Acer palmatum ‘Orange Dream’)

A marvellous Tulip

And not forgetting a liverwort – Marchantia polymorpha
