Best Laid Plans of Mice and Women!

Thursday, January 31st 2013

The planned flower walk was put on hold first thing as the 'flower identifiers' lent a hand to unload a delivery of 60 sacks of bird seed (1200kg) in total!

Out walking in the gale force winds, Ann, Sue, Elizabeth and Ruth found Gorse and Common Daisy only on their delayed wildflower walk. However, they came across this beautiful Scarlet Elf Cup.

The students from the Dales School went down to the lake and as well as seeing large waves created by the strong winds, they discovered the first Primrose out in bloom on their way back to the Field Centre.

This flower must have been developing beneath the snow!

This time last year female Hazel flowers were out along Risedale Beck, there is no sign of them yet but the male catkins are starting to appear.
