We have some of these sunny wild flowers in a damp area of the garden. Lovely photo David.

How beautiful. So many early flowers seem to be yellow.... forsythia, primrose, celandine, daffs, dandelions, buttercups.... as if they represent the return of the sun.

These lovely flowers brighten up the daily exercise walks in the woods nearby.

Just seen my first flutterby go past, don't know what it was but not a cabbage white.

Anne, we are in Norfolk & have seen a few flutterbys recently. Peacocks & a tiny pale blue one that always keeps to the hedge line.

The one at top-left seems to be the leading light. A very nice, all round photo.

Never heard of flutterby. But I've heard of Butterfly.

I should have said a Painted Lady butterfly Anne.
