Sweet violets

Sweet violets make me happy. They look so delicate but flower so early, nestling under their leaves with an unmistakeable old-fashioned scent. There is a patch under the viaduct in Bittaford.

The first cow parsley is flowering and the frilly hart’s tongue fern is still growing in the verge near Filham. Several other specimens were tending towards frilliness too, though less spectacularly.
