I'm sure this isn't an original observation but I can't help noticing that nature is in her blue period. Early in the year flowers are white or yellow (snowdrop, aconite, daffodil) but although there are yellow flowers now (cowslip, dandelion) somehow it's blue which is now centre stage.
Yesterday at Elsham it was speedwell (veronica montana) which caught my eye. These lovely wild flowers were right next to the pathway. Each flower is tiny and almost insignificant but en masse they are stunning.
Even more stunning were these bluebells in the lovely dappled sunlight. I could have looked at this clump for hours!
I'm not sure what this is - maybe a variety of Nepeta? (Come on, one of my readers must know?)
But not to leave Caistor out, here's another drift of bluebells, this time in the churchyard.
Nature may be blue but I'm not. Who could be amongst all this beauty!
