    They’re that lovely little harbinger of spring ... the celandine ... I love them ...
    the Welsh poet Edward Thomas wrote a lovely poem about celandines and memories

    Some gardeners take a different view ... here’s a recent thread

    One thing is certain ... they disappear soon after their flowers are over and the plant will have gone before the summer arrives.

    Looks like Lesser Celandine?  Makes the top of my garden very springlike  :)

    Whoops @Dovefromabove - I quite like them, bright and cheery.

    @TheRickster ...I think I can see some native primrose leaves there too ... a lovely little wildflower patch 😊
