Wealden Woods Awakening

After the gales of storm "Katie" had subsided on Easter Monday, we went for a walk through the woods around Heathfield. One wood in particular always produces early Bluebells and individual flowering plants could be counted in three figures. Wood Anemones were equally abundant. Not long now before we can glory in woodland floors carpeted in blue. In another corner of the wood the Early Purple Orchids are just starting to send up their spires.
