Garlic in Hawthorn Dene

I have been walking in Hawthorn Dene yesterday and today. The garlic flowers are very impressive all through the bottom of the valley and there are also drifts of cowslips and bluebells in the Magnesian Limestone meadow near the sea. Some of the early orchids are also in flower.

The first butterflies are showing with Large White, Orange Tip and Speckled Wood in evidence. I also saw one Wall Brown butterfly on the cowslips.
