Spring Flowers

This week has seen spring flowers appearing in abundance. a small woodland at college was carpeted with Moschatel, also known as Townhall-Clock, beside patches of Violets both purple and white, and clumps of Primroses and Ground Ivy amongst the Dogs-Mercury. Nearer home along our stream, huge clumps of bright gold Marsh Marigolds and delicate patches of Ladies Smock. Further up-stream in the woods more carpets of Moschatel were flowering alongside Opposite-Leaved Golden Saxifrage. There will soon be many Bluebells mixed with Greater Stitchwort and hiding at amongst tree roots along the path we found the dainty white flowers of Wood Sorrel.
