Curled up in Front of the Fire

Saturday, December 5th 2015

No not curled up in front of one of Foxglove's fires but at home looking out onto bending trees, and rain running down the windows.  It is an opportunity to browse through photographs, and be indulgent in sharing some favourites.

Last year when Primrose was reported as being 'out' so passing the flower test, it was not exactly believed, a yellow leaf surely?  Out came binoculars and sure enough there on the bank along Risedale Beck were yellow Primroses.  They remained in bloom right through to spring.  So far this year not even a hint of yellow.

One flower that can be found all year is the Daisy.  It grows on the lawns in front of the Field Centre and on the path along Risedale Beck.

Greater Spearwort puts on a beautiful show during the summer in the ponds in the Scrapes.  Sometimes the butter coloured flowers can be seen late in the year.  This year there may be just a hint of a petal to be seen, but in the small pond next to the Voley pond several are still nodding their heads, well they were yesterday!

Ragged Robin has been seen more often during this summer and surprisingly was seen into early autumn.

We will have to wait several months for most of these flowers to show their colours.  Possibly Holly berries in snow may have to come first!
