Technically, it's not Spring yet, but already the cheerful little sorrel is starting to get ready to supply a mass of white blossom later. The shape of it's leaves, which is called trefoil, can easily be confused with clover.
Here is the same sorrel forming a lovely carpet. Too good to step on though! Nevertheless, if it is disturbed, it recovers very quickly and carries on! It grows from tiny little bulbs called bulbils, which increase and multiply very quickly.
Having such a mild winter my poor plants don't know what to do. I have fuchias, wallflowers and daffodils all flowering. My Arum Lily which normally looks black and slimy by now is still in full leaf. It's weird but great.
