Our Meadows in Spring

So far our meadows have been a sea of yellow!  Cowslips, Lesser Celandine, Buttercups and Dandelions have been covering the vast majority of the ground.
From Left to Right:  Cowslip, Lesser Celandine, Buttercups, and Dandelions.

In between there has been the occasional Oxeye Daisy, patches of Speedwells, Forget-me-not, Wild Strawberries and Red Clovers. And around the edges of the meadows there's been Bugle, Violets, and lots of Blossom from the Blackthorn, Hawthorn, and Elder trees. The Yellow rattle and Birds-foot-trefoil can also be seen adding to the yellow shades of the meadow with the upcoming Pyramidal orchids that will bring a pop of purple.
