I have not managed to keep my blogs up in the last couple of months as all the pictures I took were stuck on a camera and there they stayed what ever I did. This means that I have missed a few of the early flowers and the opening of the horse chestnut buds. I have now managed to get a few pictures of primroses and cowslips and the first few flowers on the chestnut. The blackthorn has been lovely but is now going over.as the leaves begin to show on the hawthorn and privet. the weather was so mild early that we had a real spurt of growth but it turned much colder and things have slowed down again to more normal growth for the time of year.
