Flowers and Water   4 comments

I liked this view of some flowers overhanging the stream and the different looking background the moving water provides. The white flower is a wood anemone, the yellow one I’m not so sure of. Can anyone tell me?

Bluebells   6 comments

This time last year my local woods were a sea of blue, so I was looking forward to seeing a similar display this year. Sadly the erratic weather we have had has impacted on the numbers of bluebells that have flowered. It is still very pretty though. Even better than that is, being the massive cheapskate that I am, I don’t have to pay an entrance fee like you do at some privately owned woods.

White Wood Anemones also known as the The White Goddess compliment the display. Bluebells are often one of the indicator species of ancient woodland.

The UK is estimated to be home to up to 50% of all the world’s natural bluebells. I’m lucky to have them right on my doorstep.
