Cuckooflowers are in abundance!  In the damp parts of meadow they are there nodding their lovely little heads.  When I was a child they flourished all over our water meadows.  They are also known as Milkmaids or Lady's-smock.  We used to call them Milkmaids...  So now we await the cuckoo - who has become so rare - generally heard briefly before he makes his way north.
