Wood anemones

It was a beautiful and sunny for most of my walk along the Water of Leith this morning. There were lesser celandines everywhere and this lovely blanket of wood anemones that seems to be expanding from previous years.

Meanwhile I saw and heard the first blackcaps of the year, such a lovely song this little warbler has! There were chiffchaffs everywhere, swooping around from branch to branch looking for insects.

I love wood anemones too, they seem so delicate to be out so early! I like their other name, windflowers, too.

Sitting out in the garden for an hour or two for the first time yesterday, and heard our blackcap just tuning up!
