Spring flowers


Celandines. I've always thought of celandines as one of the candidates for Tolkien's elanor, the "sun-star" (the little yellow flowers growing in Lothlorien).














Pussy willow. So called because the smooth grey fur is supposed to resemble a cat's fur.











Violets















A colourful flowerbed












Primroses.

Pretty.

We call pussy willows for Weidenk├Ątzchen - willow kittens.
