Closer to the ground, fresh green swathes of Dog's Mercury are carpeting parts of the countryside. Again, these little flowers need close inspection to really appreciate their beauty and are sadly, usually overlooked and when growing in your garden, dismissed simply as 'weeds'. There is no such thing of course, a 'weed' is simply a flower in the wrong place..!

Having waited for so long for the Spring to finally arrive, everything seems to be desperately trying to catch up now. The Hedgerows are looking fantastic at the moment. I mentioned the Cherry trees and their showy blossoms, but the Blackthorn bushes are trying to out-do the Cherries with their blossoms.
