We did see some lovely wild flowers on our walks in Pembrokeshire. The primroses were especially beautiful.

The bluebells are looking lovely at the moment as is the wild garlic!

White water buttercup or water crowfoot or ranunculus aquatilis!

The snowdrops have put on a real show this year.

The Snowdrops in my garden are out now but I only planted a few so they look rather lonely as individual plants and are best seen in clumps.
For a few years now we have been going to Llanystumdwy and walking along the banks of the Afon Dwyfor to see the fantastic show of Snowdrops that are there.
I've attached some photos from our last visit there on the 18th February 2019 but the Snowdrops had gone past their best, sadly due to circumstances we are unable to go there this year so will have to miss the display

Hope you have a quick recovery, and do not miss out too much.

I have noticed signs of an early spring, birds collecting nesting material, buds and new groweth, but still expecting frosts.   :(

Thanks Steve, at the moment I am restricted by what I can do but will know more next Monday when the stitches are taken out

I've had plenty of time to watch the birds in the garden but haven't seen anything unusual yet but there are plenty of buds on the shrubs and plants are coming through nicely
I've planted a few new plants this year and can't wait to see them coming along

As I mentioned lots of new (groweth I missed my mistake above,) and am a bit worried about a frost, forgot to mention another potential problem,...... some recent visitors, some even brought the kids along.
