Down in Cornwall everything was a little ahead of home, so that there were even more spring flowers to enjoy. The distinctive banked hedgerows were home to many flowers, particularly primroses which were almost ubiquitous.
Elsewhere the primroses were mixed with other flowers with, in my opinion at least, the whole being greater than the sum of the parts:
With the primroses on this one small stretch of bank were violets,
and ground ivy…
Down in the woods the bluebells were threatening to emerge and in a boggy section in a valley bottom we saw a magnificent area lit up with golden saxifrage.
