Woodland wildflowers once more

The wind was a raw northerly - it brought tears to your eyes. Just the sort of weather for us to explore the delights of Binscarth and Gyre - it was 10 degrees warmer in the woodland.. Quite recently I've posted about the Hard Shield Fern, Hart's-tongue Fern, Salmonberry and Opposite-leaved Golden Saxifrage. Our recent visit on 14th April yielded a tremendous display of Wood Anenomes and Few-flowered Garlic in Binscarth and Butterbur and Dog's Mercury in Gyre.

  1. I don’t even know the way I finished up right here, however I assumed this publish was great. I do not realize who you are but definitely you are going to a well-known blogger in case you are not already. Cheers!
