I didn’t go up into the woods for a couple of days because of my sprained ankle. I am now hobbling much better and I was surprised at the change after just a few days of sunshine.

On the way back from the woods I saw a bright yellow butterfly (Brimstone?). I have never seen one before and unfortunately it fluttered by too quickly to catch on camera. Soon after I arrived home a friend telephoned, from across the village, to say she had seen a yellow butterfly. I wonder if it was the same one? :)

Thanks for confirming that it was a Brimstone, Sheila, I haven't seen one before :)

TT, my ankle is a lot better but I am still limping. It is so annoying because I need to do some heavy work in the garden and, what with the damaged finger too, I just can't get on. I am becoming rather grumpy with it :(

What a cheery site - I especially like the photo of the wood anemone. Flowers are so striking when they grow en masse like this as their colour becomes much more vivid.

I hope you had a good walk.

glad your out and about again Gee, lovely to walk in woodlands and see things come to life again. i have some bluebells to flower this year, i was given them by a client of mine who i have known since i was 16, unfortunatly i wont be seeing her again as she is very poorly and in hospital most of the time now, so i am so pleased she gave me the bluebells last year, each time they flower i will have her in my memories, she was a favourite client ;o) lovely pics Gee

Sorry to hear you're injured, so frustrating for you. Received 50 wood anemone bulbs today, thanks for showing them, your wood is so nice.

You have wood anemonies and primroses already ? Nice to see them so early. It's surprising how quickly things grow this time of year now.
