the Tame Wood
Following on from Anne's paintings of Binscarth in the late winter and early spring, it seems appropriate to put in a few images of some of the earliest flowers that we see in Orkney. I live just across from the Willows and in the last week the Snowdrops have gained strength as too have the leaves of Lesser Celandine. By early March, we should see their butter yellow flowers. In Binscarth, Wood Anemones will be at their delicate best as too will be the carpets of Opposite-leaved Golden Saxifrage.
