Another indication that the plants in Bridgnorth may be well ahead of those elsewhere nearby. Laburnums around Wolverhampton are still at the height of flowering. These were on a tree overlooked by Castle View cliff top walk earlier this week.

The ornamental, garden version of the common hedgerow bush.
These honeysuckle flowers were already almost out on Tuesday on a plant in Castle Grounds Park, Bridgnorth. All the other honeysuckle I have noticed locally are barely coming into bud.
The early blooming may be from a fortunate location in the mild climate of the Severn valley, or perhaps because this is a cultivated variety.
These tiny flowers are often seen peeping through short grass.
By the entrance to the churchyard at Claverley.
A few speedwell flowers can be seen hiding in the vegetation surrounding the coltsfoot.
The flowers are one of the last of the autumn. Here in mid-April the fruit were ripe.
Rooted in the mud below water, with the leaves (and flowers) floating on the surface.
