Show me yours. But I think this will be a short season
My first one:
and another later in the ride..
Cracking stuff, bluebell woods are fab.
You carry two watches though because......?
Gonna be out looking over the weekend. Nice close-up, redthunder.
Oh yeah???!!! Nah don't believe you!
Git, git, git.. I've been searching over the last 3 weeks or so for them, git
Hey ho, well done. I shall be back with Hampshires finest soon enough..
None out in Hampshire as far as I can tell. Are those native or imported ornamental ones?
Second watch was the other riders... proof you see
Tskkk... the real deal. Ornamental ones, how dare you
redthunder - seriously nice pic and well done! Was this Gloucs?
I need to go a-looking to my secret wood. Actually there's a few woods.
none out in my bit of somerset yet, the wild garlic didn't last long either .....
the daffodils aint even out yet here - green shoots about 2 cm max thats all
havent seen any snowdrops either or crocuses
What! Our snowdrops are still out.
Our first batch of Daffs are dying off now. Later flowering ones are still going. Snowdrops dies off a few weeks back. Tulips are budding up nicely...
Saw my first woodland bluebells this morning. Happy days.
It's a bit out of focus, but I took it with my phone, and the wind was blowing it around a fair bit, but this is the only one I saw actually open during a couple of hours wandering around West Woods, near Marlborough. Lots and lots of glossy green leaves among the trees, so there could be a pretty spectacular display, if we get some suitable weather.
Even the beech trees there are yet to show leaves.
Here's a better pic of the only open bluebell in about a 200acre wood:
But at least the primroses and wood anemones are out:
Ain't spring great?!
Saw a few early arrivals on the edge of Sulham woods today.
Wow! West Woods, where I was Sunday, is a carpet of glossy green, but there's nary a flower spike to be seen, other than the one I photographed, one just in front that was still buds, and one other several feet away that was showing hints of blue. I reckon it'll be at least a week until there's any significant blooms showing over there.
Rode through bluebell wood today in Surrey. Not one had emerged yet.
Oooh, playing catch-up.
Fantastic pics there redthunder. Assuming that it's Gloucs again?
Today I was riding on the Wiltshire/Hampshire border and not a bluebell to be seen. Plenty of primroses, in fact I would say more than usual.
Edit: interesting weather today, bloomin' cold and windy and there were virtually hailstones at the end of the ride.
This has sprung up in my back garden! Totally wild, it's just appeared at the edge of the lawn by some paving slabs that make a short path to the bottom of what now passes for a garden.
That's a cowslip, much liked by herbalists
Off out looking for bluebells in FoD today, some of the best places have been well 'rotovated' by the boar so should be interesting to see how the bluebells fare...
I saw one on Tues. Just one mind and not ready to open.
