Wood anemones are appearing around the Hellebore Hill this week. These were here in the woodland when we arrived six years ago, and I’ve read that colonies of this size can take 80 years to develop. 🌱 They are easy to miss in the woods because the flowers are so small, as you can see in comparison to the common violet. .
A bit more on #anemonenemorosa {The wood anemone, is an early-spring flowering plant in the buttercup family Ranunculaceae, native to Europe. Other common names include windflower, thimbleweed, and smell fox, an allusion to the musky smell of the leaves. It is a herbaceous perennial plant growing 5–15 centimetres tall.} Wikipedia
