Larch

Sunday, March 29th 2015

In autumn, under blue skies Larch trees show off their golden hue.

During the winter flocks of birds feed on the seeds in the cones.

During spring we eagerly await the red flower that we know will give rise to the cones for the winter.

Along with the flowers come the new, bright green needles. A sign of spring!

Today some of the Foxglove volunteers have been at Catterick Market helping to raise funds for the reserve.  A huge thank you to everybody who helped today.
