Yellow Star of Bethlehem and Creeping Comfrey

Last year the flowering of Yellow Star of Bethlehem at Scotch Gill woods Morpeth was 18th April with 26 flowering plants. The cold early spring meant they were a month late. This year on 18th March there was also 26 flowering plants but by 29th March there were 42 flowering plants the most I have seen so far at this site. Creeping Comfrey is also spreading through the woodland around Morpeth. The above flowers are growing in woods near the castle and there is another large clump growing in woodland near East Mill.

Yellow Star looks a nice flower - not easy to find in the UK it seems.

Thanks for the comments: spring flowers are lovely at this time of year, the yellow star are doing well at the moment but a serious flood could wash them all downstream!
