More Spring

Saturday, April 18th 2015

Out looking for Early Purple Orchids a Cowslip was spotted in a place where it had not been seen before.  Great excitement!  Photograph taken.  Then rather quickly common sense prevailed, it was a Primrose that had been nibbled!

However further around the walk Cowslips were spotted and in flower, where they should be!


Almost each day something new is to be seen as spring progresses.  The leaves of Marsh Marigold had been recorded, but no flowers. Then suddenly the buds had opened and the bright yellow flower could be seen in all its glory.

One flower that may not make it into the April flower list is Bluebell, although this one is quite close.
