Topsy turvey then!   There were violets out in Marlow in mid-March, along with the blackthorn and celandines, in my garden they appeared 2 weeks ago but the bluebells have only been out for a week. The lily of the valley has just burst into bells, the clematis and holly are in full flower but the pyrocantha, which this time last year was just opening, is still only putting out tightly closed buds.

The chestnut candles are probably out in Dorchester..... it's this time of year I miss it most.
