I went for a walk in the woods yesterday – the sun was shining, and I decided to make the most of it.
The leaf buds are beginning to appear on this weeping willow, which will look fabulous when it has all of its foliage and the branches are nearly touching the water. The river is very high at the moment – the result of the weeks and weeks of rain we’ve had.
When I first saw these blue flowers from the distance, on the woodland floor, I thought they were bluebells, which had come out very early, but on closer inspection they are lungwort (which I had to look up, because I don’t think I’ve seen them before). The photo looks as though I’ve had the camera at a strange angle, but it was a sloping piece of ground.
