Violets in March

There are a couple of patches of violets growing in the lawn.

They're rather nice. Of course, for a real patch of violets, you have to got to the A143, just on the Haddiscoe side of Beccles:

They are part of a quite large bank, which looks quite elderly, the picture being taken under a fully mature Oak, so perhaps it's an edge of a piece of ancient woodland.

Of course the Lesser Celandines get a look in too:

First few Snowdrops just coming out of bud in the garden

On Church Lane there is a decent patch in full flower

Blubell shoots

While deciding where to put the chicken fencing it became apparent that the woodland end of the garden is actually a Bluebell woodland patch. There are some snowdrops and crocuses too. Maybe the chickens can go round the apple trees...
