As you know my blog is named after a cheerful sunshiney flower that splashes its golden colour around woodlands,fields,hedgerows and gardens as soon as Spring arrives.In fact the pretty star-like celandine is one of the first signs of spring,usually appearing from as early as February.
This year Spring has been a little hesitant in arriving …..but now seems to be blossoming.Just like the comely carpet of celandines below.:)
Here is a poem I found by William Wordsworth.
To The Small Celandine.
Let them live upon their praises;
Long as there’s a sun that sets
Primroses will have their glory;
Long as there are Violets,
They will have a place in story:
There’s a flower that shall be mine,
Tis the little Celandine.
Wordsworth wrote two other poems featuring the sunny celandine.And the flower can also be spied in c s Lewis, The Lion,the Witch and the wardrobe.:)
What is your favourite Spring flower?
