Here's a late narcissus blooming in Suffolk, one of my favourite English counties. It is on a woodland track, and it was blooming a few days ago, at least a month after most narcissi have faded.
Suffolk is not considered to be one of the most conventionally beautiful counties, at least as far as landscape is concerned. . It's largely flat, and there's a lot of heathland with very poor soil. But to me, it has a more subtle beauty. It grows heather and gorse, which at this time of year is so full of blossom that it seems to blaze.
The central and Northern parts are undeveloped, and I like to feel I'm avoiding the big supermarkets and unpleasant roads that blight so many country areas.
I love the coastline around Dunwich and Southwold, and inland from that, and I don't tire of exploring it. It was very sunny at the weekend, and the sea was extremely rough, and a bitterly cold wind was coming off it,
And we found an abandoned wildfowl egg on the edge of a field of thousands of small pink flowers.
