April 27th

The fragrance of bluebells is still in the wood, but it is getting harder for the sun to reach the flowers. The bluebells are in the shade most of the time, the sunlight on them getting more scarce. Many of them are still in their buds, as they only had a very short time this year to enjoy the light and the warmth. The canopy of the beeches is covering them almost fully now. Fortunately, the young beech leaves are still transparent, and the wood stays enchantingly beautiful on a sunny day. Meanwhile, a lot of spring flowers are flowering: lords-and-ladies with its mysterious inflorescence, graceful herb-paris, conspicuous garlic mustard along the paths, greater stitchwort with its split white petals, Solomon’s seal with its discreet hanging flowers and yellow archangel with its gaping yellow flowers, welcoming pollinators.
