I’m not very good at people.
I’m much better at animals, insects, flowers, etc.
If you were to ask where does Mr Whatever live, I’d probably have no idea, unless he was one of the few people in my village that I do know.
But if you were to ask where can I find some Red Dead-nettles flowering, or where is the best place to look for Wood Anemones, I’m your person!
At the far end of the playing field, there is a patch where you’re guaranteed some Red Dead-nettles, no question…
In the woods, just before where the old bridge used to be… that’s where you’ll find the Wood Anemones. Not yet, but they’ll be there in April, I promise.
What about the first flowers of the year – where can I find snowdrops? Well, take a look round by the church wall, you’ll see plenty there. And just by the Horse Chestnut tree is a good spot.
How about a good spot to photograph catkins on Hazel, well that would be up by the stile that leads into the lane, not far from the Red Dead-nettle patch.
And the beautiful Cuckooflowers, where are they? In the hedgerow down by the marshy field, and in the field itself too. And if you’re looking for Orange-tip Butterflies, that’s the place to look for them too – they like Cuckooflowers nearly as much as I do! They’ll be there in May… not yet.
And if you’re a fan of Columbine (otherwise known as Granny Bonnets or Aquilegia), you can find them in the hedgerow. A good spot is next to the gate near the Horse Chestnut tree, although it’s also a good spot for Stinging Nettles so don’t get stung!
Hope you have enjoyed a look at my neighbourhood 🙂
