Yesterday afternoon, I took a walk to the next hamlet and thought that you may enjoy some of the many sights that I saw along the way. Close ups were well nigh impossible, as the wind was blowing everything all over the place. Also the stinging nettles did not encourage me to move in too close! I really must buy a book on wild flowers and grasses of Europe, but there is little point while I am here, as they are all in French!!
A wild hyacinth?
These I think are wild violets.
There are many types of buttercups, but I think that this is what these are. The lesser celandine and buttercups are quite similar.
These two were on the same plant, (bluebell not yet in flower), the lower one was twice as big as the one above with slightly different markings. I have to say I was happy to keep away from the tail end of both of them!!
Last, but certainly not least, I came across this happy pair of common wall lizards basking in the sun.
