Mr GBT and I took a stroll yesterday over to our local nature reserve [more about that in a follow up post] but these are some of the stunning sights that greeted us en route.
Daddodils as my friend's small person used to call them!
And the dandy of them all!
Lesser Celandine. Known by the Celts as Grian [sun] because its petals close up before rain. Has other names such as Pilewort, Foalfoot, Spring Messenger and Golden Guinea.
And finally Marsh Marigold which is one of the first wetland plants to flower. It is one of the most ancient British plants and is otherwise called King's Cup, May-Blobs, Water Cowslip and Water-Bubbles.
