happy day note

I went to the sea in my van and we rode bikes until they jammed in the hot, dry sand. There and back I admired, in gardens, the full pure white blossom of Prunus 'Shirotae', earliest of the ornamental cherries and my favourite.

I also noticed:

Common Reed (last year's flowerheads, now crumbling and fluffy.

Sand Sedge (buds appearing, stems still much shorter than leaves).

Sea Spurge (leaves only).

Black Spleenwort under shrubs on a rocky cliff.

Rock Samphire (leaves only).
