There aren't many primroses to be found growing on the farmland at the back of the house but the north facing slope of the east to west dyke has a huge population of cowslips and what a fabulous shade of yellow they are.
Despite the chilly winds that have been blowing they are beginning to emerge and I would think that in a very short time there will be hundreds in flower. The retired farmer positively loves them and now he lets them flower and go to seed before he cuts any of the grass on the headlands.
I've told him that he is becoming an octogenarian ecowarrior. He just says that I've been on the interweb to often and being eighty-four he's too old to be an octogenarian ecowarrior.
