Last week we spent 5 days in this lovely corner of England in our motorhome on a small farm site. Most of this countryside lies in Lancashire but it does continue over the border into Cumbria.This is pretty countryside on mainly limestone with its limestone walls, woodland, a network of paths and quiet country lanes ,a lovely place to discover the abundance of early spring flowers both on foot and by bike. I won't name all the flowers because some of them are common but they were pleasing to the eye after the ravages of winter.
The woods in this area were full of Primroses, Cowslips, Wood Anemones, Violets and the first bluebells
Stitchwort (a plant that needs to grow in grass for support)
And finally the start of the orchid season, after looking on Arnside knott the orchids had not developed to the flowering stage but over on Warton Crag there were dozens of them in full flower.
