Cowslips

Another day of Spring sunshine.  Walked across the Glebe field to to the river Lednock, where primroses and cowslips grow.  Bumble bees out in the Glebe.

Cowslips grew profusely in the fields in my childhood.    We children were paid to gather them in buckets for a lady who made wine.  We took them for granted, that they were always there, though they seem rarer today.  A reassurance, every Spring, to find them.
