A little sun

The first frogspawn is about 3 weeks later than it was in the last couple of years. What amazes me is that the first spawn is always in this high exposed area.

Lesser Celandine - Ranunculus ficaria - has been budding for about 4 weeks, but this is the first open one I found:

As soon as the leaves develop, the fungal rust Puccinia ranunculi appears:

Staying with fungi, Tubaria furfuracea is to be found under Hawthorns for much of the year:

And the fungus Milesina scolopendrii has been attacking leaves of Hart's tongue fern.
