A Bunch of Flowers

Tuesday, April 4th 2017

Foxglove may be 'greening up' but there are also hints of colour showing through.  Wood Sorrel leaves have been seen for several weeks but the flowers have been slow to show themselves (or we could just be being impatient!) but these ones have been found!

Wood Anenomes only open when the sun shines so can be easily missed.

The Wild Cherry down by the lake bridge is always the first of its species to flower.

Violets - the ID of these ones is still not clear, it could be Common Dog Violet or Wood Dog Violet.  Books, hand lens and discussion needed. No matter which one it is, they enjoy the sun.

While we appreciate the spring flowering there are hints of more to come.  This EPO - Early Purple Orchid - is in bud.

The middle moor has been checked over the last few weeks.  Seedlings scrutinised and finally Yellow Rattle seedlings are present!
