hedgerow flora

I’d been meaning to sketch this proliferation of primroses for a while, violets & cuckoo flowers, the leaves of cow parsley and arums. First blackthorn flowers in the cut hedge along with the leaves…usually the flowers come before the leaves.
I also had a look up in the woods where there were many more bluebells in flowers along with wood anemones, the garlic still tightly budded (though flowering in our garden). Another tawny owl sighting, much alarming of blackbirds in a little ravine, as I approached the owl took flight across open field and into a large oak.
