The wood anemones can be enjoyed now with their star-shaped flowers against a green carpet of bluebell leaves. They follow the sun as if they were living solar panels. They will stay the most prominent of spring flowers for the next ten days. More bluebells come into leaf, but they are still a long way from forming a blue sea of flowers as most plants do not have their flower buds yet. Lesser calendine is flowering along the path, its flowers only open when the sun shines. Some flowering early dog-violet can be found, and the fragile, scarce Belgian gagea.  It’s marvellous to walk in the wood on a sunny day. Do stay on the paths, please, also when taking pictures.
