What a joy to see the violets, daisies and primroses popping up, not to mention the unfurling leaves. The great big sticky buds of Horse Chestnut (Aesculus) are all unfolding. The willows (Salix) are breaking their buds too. Long awaited outbreaks of sunshine mixed with bursts of rain and scattered hail showers remind us that it is April weather, ‘April showers bring forth May flowers’.
I can finally show you some photos of Great Linford when it’s not covered in snow.
