Alder catkins catch the sun in the Linden Field
Spring came to Wenlock this week, both time-wise and weather-wise. We’ve had lunch in the garden three days running. Astonishing for March! Full-on sun and a general bursting of buds and blooms in every quarter. Even the moss on the garden steps has switched to hyper-green mode.
Over the road in the Linden Field there are prairies of wild garlic leaves just begging to be plucked for sauces and soups. In fact such is the vegetative imperative of this particular plant, it’s to be found sprouting from the lime tree hollows on the Linden Walk. At the top of the field, under the oaks, the daffodils are at peak perfection. Also growing there are wood anemones, dog’s mercury, violets and primroses. Then beside the Cutlins path the horse chestnut trees are now a mass of sticky buds. And at home in the garden the white japonica is looking its serene best.
This week Ann-Christine at Lens-Artists asks us to show her curves.

Beautiful photos, Tish. I am looking forward to driving back to our northern home where Spring actually bursts forth. You have captured Spring so very well. Thanks for bringing a big smile to my life today.
Am so happy to raise a smile, Pat. And thank you for your lovely comment.
It looks a lot like spring!!!
It does, doesn’t it 🙂
Great images, Tish!
Thank you, Sue.
Pleasure! I always love seeing images from your area, and especially the Linden Walk
🙂 🙂 🙂
What a grand sight, Tish! It’s rainy and grey here in our topsy turvy world.
How dare your weather do that, Jo. May be it’s come to Shropshire for a spell 🙂
I don’t mind if it has. Just a shame for anyone who planned a sunshine break. 🙄💗 I’m back in the UK next weekend so you can be sure it’ll change 🤣☔💟
Graham says we’re in for hail a few days from now. So who knows what will happen next. Happy travelling!
Poor flowers! Nowhere to take refuge.
And now I’m worrying about my broad bean seedlings. Still, sunny day here tomorrow.
Spring has definitely been your inspiration this week. And it’s wild garlic season again! Hooray!
This year it looks like the wild garlic is intent on taking over the town. Had a good handful of chopped leaves in the tomato and butter bean casserole last night.
Lovely spring photos, Tish. That wild garlic sounds delicious. When we’re in Wyoming, we’ve found wild onions and I found them also in the park in Illinois. I used to buy primroses at a farmer’s market in Ohio in the spring and then I’d plant them outside. They were lovely. I really like the words “catkins” and “japonica.” 🙂
Janet – we have a problem with wild onions growing in our front lawn – yikes
Thanks, Janet. I like the sound of wild onions. I don’t think we have those here.
lunch in the garden really does seem like a great way to get more out of spring and its arrival
and I enjoyed the blooms and bits of life sprouting out as you showed us here
Happy days, Yvette!
What gorgeously spring-filled photos! I think my favourites are the wild garlic leaves contrasted with the rough bark and that beautiful wood anemone 😀
Thank you, Sarah.
Great photos. I love the moss!
I love the moss too, John 🙂
The tree stump looks like a great place to sit, ponder and watch Spring wake up. I liked the leaves in between the trees too.
Very nice. Donna
It is certainly a great to time to sit and watch – seeing spring happen.
Oh, Tish – thank you for bringing such lovely spring curves! You seem to have got them all by now, and ours are barely visible. But soon…
Ah…spring has indeed sprung Tish. some wonderful curves this week – and lunch in the garden. Life is good!
Thanks, Tina. And it is indeed hard to beat lunch in the garden – 6 days running now 🙂
Beautiful photos, Tish. You have captured Spring so very well. Thanks for sharing Anita
Thank you, Anita 🙂
Beautiful set of spring curve photos.
Many thanks, Amy.
We aren’t quite there yet. We are still at the end of winter, with occasional warm days, but mostly very cold nights and a lot of icy rain. But the birds are bringing lots of babies into our world and there are lots of shoots coming up in our so-called garden. Still, it’s too soon for planting anything. Not yet. Another two or three weeks until the magic really happens.
We’ve slipped back into a cool spell this week, but not enough to stop things growing. And doing a bit of digging at the allotment is finally possible after a general drying out after weeks of rain. Wishing you springier days.
Great response to this challenge Tish. And lovely images.
Many thanks, Anne.
