Flowers

Tuesday, May 17th 2011

The spring flowers are still showing their colours and joining them are the early summer flowers.  Early Purple Orchids are still to be seen but soon their place will be taken by Northern Marsh Orchids.  Each species grows in a different part of the reserve.

The Bluebells still carpet many banksides.  Growing amongst them is the brilliant white Wild Garlic. (Ramsons)

Red Campion is in flower in the Scrapes.  Another place to see this flower is along Risedale Beck but it is just in bud.  As it flowers much later a pink splash of colour can be seen well into autumn here.
