But the rain came back. Of course.

Wood Sorrel - Oxalis acetosella - has very attractive flowers that bear close examination. As you can see, the rain returned.

The fertile shoots of Field Horsetail - Equisetum arvense - precede the familiar green growth by several weeks:

Leaves have appeared on the more sheltered Hawthorn bushes:

The wood sorrel is absolutely beautiful. Brilliant work!

Isn't that wood sorrel fantastic - it's one of my favourite flowers, and I've been trying to get a good shot of it for about 4 years - I have nothing remotely as good as this - made by those raindrops. Wonderful!

Those horsetail spikes always look prehistoric to me - you half expect to see a dinosaur in shot - I've got the big one (E. telmateia) putting up its spikes just now.
