Same Time, Same Place

Sunday, March 19th 2017

This time last year the blog recorded the willow in blossom along the fence near the access gate.  The sun was bright and the sky was blue.  This year it is in blossom again, but without the blue sky.

We always assume Coltsfoot is an early spring flower, but we often  hunt for it in vein, but it has been found in bloom down by the Bullet Catcher pond.  Other places to look for this dandelion like flower is the back garden and on the islands in Risedale Beck.

Lesser Celandine open with the sun and close when it is dull.  First seen on the island in the Voley Pond this year, but first photographs have been taken near the wetland hide.

Primroses are now showing their flowers along Risedale Beck, on the bank from the wetland and through the Hazel Avenue.

Now that the spring (vernal)) equinox is nearly here, 10.28 on 20th March 2017, our days are getting longer, so allowing more time to be out and about with cameras, taking photographs for the Foxglove 2018 calendar.
