Kineton Churchyard has some lovely patches of wild flowers. The patches of cowslips had not started flowering when these photos were taken in March.

Dog Daisies – big white daisies with yellow centres – to flower soon! The remains of last year’s flower-heads can still be seen. Daisies are ‘compound’ flowers – masses of tiny little flowers all packed together. They have nectar in each little flower, so visiting insects can take quite a while sipping from each little floret.
