            Celandine seen this morning, a lucky sighting of an exceptionally early flower as the sheep were being brought off the hill to be treated and moved to winter quarters, and we had to make a small detour to avoid the operation, and saw it on our revised route.

            Noticed these ones in bloom on 23rd December !

                Another early flower, Mrs Scrungee found Violets in bloom this morning whilst walking Dog in the woods.
