Wild flowers and wall at Avebury

One of the many stone walls in Avebury - probably built from the sarsens that had been broken up in recent centuries.
Slender speedwell growing at the base of a stone wall.

Lesser Celandines on a bank near the National Trust shop.
This little flower struggled to show itself today as closes up when there is no sunlight - today started cloudy but hopeful. Alas, the rain was soon to blow in from the west.
"There's a little flower that shall be mine
'Tis the little celandine" (Wordsworth)
