Newbury marketplace

Just in case you're tempted.

Buckthorn and lesser celandines are just waiting for some sun without the cold breeze. Can't be long now...

First real display of spring flowers. These are fully feral and make a nice patch of brightness by the side of the road. Last few days of February, early March. Oddly enough the pictures taken under overcast conditions came out better than those in bright sunlight taken next day. You need to be able to see the digital screen!

Ten feet in to the wood and there is a carpet of them on

both sides of the path.

This is really a bluebell wood and they are well on their way, but the snowdrops got in first of course.
