Spring vibes in Norwich, 9 March 2022

A day getting things done in Norwich with the added bonus of some sun, a long walk and some nice plants. 

Just outside Earlham Cemetery on Farrow Road there are some fabulous Netted Irises in lovely condition along the central reservation. In the cemetery itself, armed with Rex Hancy's 'Notable Trees of Norwich' book I tracked down the rather spectacular Weeping Beech and also a single Whitebeam. Some of the other trees he mentions will have to wait until the leaves are on the trees! Also seen there amongst the huge displays of Crocuses, Daffodils, Snowdrops and Primroses were a few Glory-of -the-Snow plants, a species closely related to the squills. 

Jus had recently found a rather nice looking Silk Tassel tree just off Upper St Giles so I ventured there next to pay it homage, also finding a Small-flowered Gorse next to it. On the walk back through the back streets I found Garden Tree Mallow and Greater Celandine in flower too.
