Colt's-foot, Lesser Celandine and Marsh Marigold - it's official!

I've seen them all in flower this week. Hooray! Last Sunday at Warebeth, Colt's-foot was in flower in a weedy field next to the cemetery wall - and there were many open flower-heads. Today I managed to see Lesser Celandine along the banks of the Wideford Burn and Marsh Marigold just in land of the burn and surrounded by carpets of Opposite-leaved Golden Saxifrage that in itself was thinking hard about flowering. And this is just the start - there's plenty left to come.
