Daisies, dandelions and celandines
Although few and far between as yet, these harbingers of spring are already beginning to appear. They are common, in fact their success at growing everywhere and spreading easily earns them the title of garden weed. All three open and close with the sun.
Daisies, the 'day's eyes' are happy in short grass
Dandelions ('dent de lion' or lion's tooth) are around all year but have their big blooming at this time of year. If they were rare they would be highly prized.
And the lesser celandine, also ubiquitous, gives a cheery display of springtime stars when the sun shines.
