and all of a sudden our country lanes are full of colour again!

Even though it was a grey dull day, my spirits couldn't fail to be lifted walking along our lane today, with the sound of distant curlew warbling and a wren singing for all it's might on the top of the hawthorn hedge, such a big song for such a tiny bird!
Take a closer look at the hedge and the verge and glimpses of colour catch your eye. whites and yellows and a very well hidden patch of blue.
