Around Foxglove

Sunday, February 2nd 2014

Last year Gorse did not make it onto the list  of January flowers.  This year the brilliant yellow flowers can be seen around the reserve, especially on the moor.  After rain it has its accompanying raindrops!

As it is so wet the Excidia recisa fugus is remaining on dead willow branches, and yes, it too has drops of water hanging from it.

Cuckoo Pint or Lords and Ladies grows along Risedale Beck, later in the year.  In one area there are some leaves already growing.

On still days the stark leafless trees are reflected in the lake.

In the Scrapes the reflections of the plants are more artistic!
