Spring is sprung in England

To be fair, spring started some time ago, but it’s only in the last few weeks that trees are starting to turn green and it really has the feel of spring in the air. So, as my Regency Romances are set (mostly) in England, and most of my readers are not based here, I’ve gathered together a few photos showing the best bits of spring in my part of the world.

(I’ve omitted the rainy days, of which we have had many this year!)

The first signs of spring for me are the snowdrops, in the woods, and in places like churchyards.

After the snowdrops come primroses and daffodils.

Then it’s time for the bluebells.

Trees come  into blossom – lots of ornamental cherries, but amongst the native trees, hawthorne and apple trees are pretty in early May.

And in the woods, wild garlic comes into bloom. There are lots of other wildflowers around, such as stichwort, herb robert, cowslips and cow parsley, but their flowers are smaller and harder to photograph.

      Most of my photos had disappeared! I’ve added them back, there should be a lot more then just the snowdrop ones.
