Dawlish Warren

This is the time of year for the Sand Crocus - which grows only in Dawlish Warren in the UK (a few other sites have existed but currently thought extinct at them). It is common in Tunisia though so at its northern extreme in sunny Dawlish.

It's a place well worth a visit in any case and a sunny day (the flowers open only in sun) at the end of March begining of April is the time for Sand Crocus or Romulea columnae. While walking around we found several other early flowers and lots of signs for more to cdome.

I visited with David Fenwick - see his site for more great flower pictures.
