This seed head of a clematis flower that survived a very harsh winter is almost prettier than the flower itself was.

Today the first crocus of the season is starting to bloom:


and the first Bumble bee of the new year made its appearance. (This was a “hip shot”: the Bumble was a very quick and very busy bee).

The first Draba verna is also blooming on a warm cliff just above the river.

Suddenly, a few days ago, this little flower appeared in a sadly neglected flower bed. I had never seen one here before, and so it’s a first… and certainly the last… blossom of our long hot summer.
