If you wish to go straight to a full list of my New Year's flowers, scroll to the bottom of the page.
Before I really started, I nipped over to Tesco Express to get a newspaper. In unregarded in-between places, such as those where a wall meets the ground and the edge of the grass nearby, I found plants of my childhood memories including groundsel and shepherd's purse. I have vivid memories of opening the tiny purse-like seed heads with my little fingers and finding the "money" inside.
|Tiny green flowers of petty spurge|
Turning into Lime Tree Avenue, I found a few early sprigs of cow parsley.
|Yellow corydalis in the church wall|
Turning out of the church yard, I finally find some weather beaten primroses in bloom.
|Annual meadow grass.|
