This spell of warm weather has brought out many spring flowers in the Forest. Mick Farmer has provided this lovely photograph of Primroses.
The banks of the River Severn are colourful with flowers at present – comfrey, red Campion, Garlic Mustard, Cow Parsley and others. Much of the comfrey we see locally is Russian Comfrey Symphytum x uplandicum which is a hybrid between Common Comfrey (Symphytum officinale) and the introduced Rough Comfrey (Symphytum asperum).
There are several places around the Wyre Forest where one might find small numbers of Wild Daffodils. These were seen recently along the northern edge of Eymore Wood where they spill out of the wood and into the adjoining field.
