Cuckoo Flower

Cuckoo  Flower or Lady's Smock is now suddenly in flower in hedgerows and banks.
Its arrival in early April coincides with the arrival of the Cuckoo whose song marks the arrival of spring.
The sound of the Cuckoo is becoming increasingly rare in our area as numbers have declined in recent years.
