To me, Spring is typified by two colours: Yellow and Purple. Enjoy
The fritillary is a rare flower to find growing wild these days. It comes in those two colours
Is it a cowslip or an oxlip? I always muddle them. Yet they’re not so alike
The primroses, here coupled with a violet. Yellow and Purple, the colours of Spring (ok, so this violet veers more to the blue)
I think (but I’m not sure) that this is Fairy Flax
And appearing like an exclamation mark, and cultivated, not wild (but I couldn’t resist)
That’s all folks. Many of the earliest flowers are now fading away. Perhaps next week I’ll have something different for you.
