evening Norfolk countryside in April
Mornings and evenings are the best times of the day for light, that's no secret. Its also the best for scents too, blossom has a wonderful wafting fragrance - at the moment it's hawthorne which is now just starting to bloom (I think it's the last which is sad but this year I'm convinced  the blossom from start to end is much, much more protracted than the last few years).

Cow slips - I saw these two in flower on the roadside and had to take a couple of snaps, I've not seen any others locally, the opportunity was not to be missed.

I had to look up two - my wild flower book is really getting good use. C bought it for me for Christmas and I've been determined to delve in at every opportunity. While I am still mulling over what the above species could be... my best guess is wintercress or possibly hedge mustard, the below gargantuars will have to wait until they flower so I can narrow it down by colour to give me an advantage.

Pretty birdies everywhere now, so delightful to hear them.
Below, red campion. I've seen some in white and a pastel pale pink which have left me wondering if they are mere colour variations or different species altogether. The book suggests that white campion is a species in it's own right but no mention of paler pinks.

A sadly abandoned egg in the middle of a footpath, it can't have been there long else a dog would have wolfed it down or a careless foot would have crushed it for sure.

  2. I took a leaf out of your book (excuse the pun) and looked up a flower we saw whilst out wandering in the bluebells, it turned out to be a red campion. Andy bought me a wildflower book a few birthdays ago but I'd forgotten all about it until you mentioned using yours.
    Lovely photos as ever, got everything crossed for Country Style Blog Award xx
