Ramson amongst the Ferns

It has been one of the driest springs ever, with almost no rain in April and early May.  However this doesn’t seem to have effected the usual fantastic display of Ramsons.  The last of them are still flowering amongst the Ferns on the north slopes of Harridge Wood West.

Yellow jewels

The Ramson flowering is nearly over for another year, but just inside Harridge Wood West they are still out.

Bright Buttercup flowers now peak like jewels though the sheets of white flowers, making a really nice display.

Wild Garlic Flowering

The flower heads of Ramson, or Wild Garlic, are forming throughout the woods, and there are open flowers scattered everywhere.  However there are a few areas, such as the entrance of Harridge Wood West, or downstream of the Wooden Bridge, where the Ramsons are flowering en-mass.
