Anthony Sargeant took this photograph of Forget-me-nots bursting out from a crevice in the stone steps leading to the top part of his Shropshire garden. It is mid-April and the Forget-me-nots are flowering in profusion all over the garden where they have self seeded in their profligacy.
The hedgerows are blossoming in the early spring in this part of England – lots of small jewel-like flowers peppering the banks under the hawthorn hedges that enclose the fields in this part of Shropshire. Anthony Sargeant is fortunate to live in such a gentle and calm countryside. The fields themselves are full of ewes and their young lambs still at the end of March suckling at their mothers teats as we enter April.
There is something very encouraging about the flowering of Aubretia – they are amongst the first of the Spring flowers. This small clump was photographed by Anthony J Sargeant in his Shropshire garden on 30th March 2017.
Spring has arrived in England and the primroses are blooming all over the garden and in the hedgerows. Anthony Sargeant, Tony, took this photograph late in the afternoon of the 30th March 2017 in the garden of his Shropshire Home.

The primroses are starting to flower in the hedgerows around the Shropshire UK home of Anthony J Sargeant – a harbinger of spring it is hoped.

After the snow first thing on the 16th April 2016 the skies soon cleared over Shropshire (UK) to yield a glorious spring day. This photograph was taken from the Shropshire home of Anthony Sargeant looking across Corvedale towards The Brown Clee Hill. One can understand Robert Browning’s yearning in his poem ‘Home thoughts from abroad’ on days like this “Oh to be in England now that April’s there”
