This afternoon I walked out to Little Canfield Church. I wanted to check the progress of the blue bells at Runnell Hey. And was not disappointed. They are in their first flush promising the usual burst of colour.
On the walk it was good to see the path-side plants. They may be common but in their spring showing their shining beauty is welcome.
Stitchwort has a beautiful flower and looks special at this time of the year as does the Wood Anemone.
Some simple plants to look out for. I don’t know if being able to name them increases the enjoyment of them and by the way; stitchwort is supposed to have the medicinal property that it cures stitches. Might be useful for the cyclists and runners who passed me today.
