A Walk in the Woods

It’s a beautiful sunny morning. The wind’s a bit fresh, (March is going out like a lion!) but look at that blue sky! Would you like to join me on a Sunday stroll in the woods?

Since Anemone nemorosa is only just beginning to flower, she is still showing a touch of pale pink… or is she blushing?

Her cousin, Anemone ranunculoides, is a little showier in her bright spring yellow…

The Corydalis cava spread across the woodland floor, like Edwardian ladies preparing for a picnic…

This must be the Corydalis bride…

Look who is waking up… a sleepy cowslip! Primula veris, what a nice surprise!

While the Hepatica nobilis perfumes the woodland with its sweet and heavenly scent…

… the Yellow Star-of-Bethlehem, Gagea lutea, simply glows…

And glows…

Yellow seems to be the colour of the day, as the Lesser Celandine, Ranunculus ficaria, draws the eye to a sunny clearing …

But oh my goodness. A jump for joy! Long sought and rarely found! Two sisters stand next to the foresters’ road; Coltsfoot – Tussilago farfara – has finally been sighted again.

Now we can turn back and make our way home in the warming sunshine.

Thank you for coming with me!

  1. What a lot of beauties! We only have about half of those. I should begin posting woodland flowers by the end of April. I will bet you are outdoors all the time.

  2. How beautiful Cathy. We spent a weekend in Shropshire early last April and enjoyed similar woodland flowers. March exited quietly here but I think that it’s going to get livelier as the week goes on.
