Spring Flowers

Saturday, April 11th 2015

The warm days have encouraged the spring flowers to open.  Blackthorn, which lives up to its name by being black and having thorns, grows in several areas on the reserve, but the first tree to open the tiny white buds is on the left hand side, at the bottom of the hill, as you walk downstream, along Risedale Beck.

Barren Strawberry is in flower along the edges of the many paths.

Wood Anemone, also known as Wind Flower, is looked for almost daily at this time of year.  We know where it grows and so these areas are examined closely.  Negative reports are returned, then suddenly, one day they are in flower!

A flower that is now covering the banks along Risedale Beck, along the path edges and even on the moor is of course the flower that everyone knows is the harbringer of spring - the Primrose.
