Caldbeck to Hesket Newmarket ....spring walk

An early spring walk. The wood anemones were at their best; the wild garlic just about to bloom. The celandines glowed; the herb Paris was just about to blossom. Lunch at the Old Crown and ice cream in Caldbeck...another cracking walk.
Top left: the road to Caldbeck....the rest are from the walk along the Caldew.

Left - Waters meet and then top right - herb Paris (ancient woodland indicator species) and damp wood anemones. 
Toothwort ...uncommon - a parasitic ancient woodland indicator species. 
Bleach cup fungus....found in the spring.
Happy boy -Rocky!
