Lindsay's Flora Blog

Posted: Sunday 29th March 2020 by trustadmin

Anyone who knows me will be aware that I’m passionate about wildflowers – a hobby originated by childhood walks with my mother in Jersey. With the wonderful array of spring wildflowers now coming into bloom, at the very time we are limited as to our ability to go out and enjoy them, I thought I would start a regular blog about those I’ve seen recently and would like to share.


I’m going to start with Lesser Celandine which most of you will know and be able to find. This is one of the earlier flowers to appear – I very often see one or two out at the end of December / beginning of January (in the UK they are more common in February) - but now they are everywhere, with their glossy yellow petals and heart-shaped deep green leaves. This small growing perennial herb is in the Buttercup family and the bright, yellow star-shaped flowers often blanket the ground, their cheerful “faces” making me, for one, feel happier.
