Wood Anenome sighting sparks rumours of spring


The first Wood Anenome of the spring


While marching through the South Edlemann woods with tools for de-silting culverts an eagle eyed volunteer spotted a Wood Anenome in the undergrowth. These star shaped white flowers are quite distinctive and you will often see them in woodland where the sunlight can get through. The flower principally spreads through rhizomes and large areas can be carpeted. Areas of the Edlemann wood and Pond Wood are abundant with bluebell shoots, so the wildflower display in some areas promises to be spectacular.

It’s good to know that according to nature, if not the weatherman, spring is on the way.

If you have any good photos of wild flowers, or anything else in the woods please e-mail them to pettswoodnt@nationaltrust.org.uk as I’m in the process of putting a gallery together
