Wandering in the Woods Part One

I am a girl of the woods through and through...nowhere else do I find such peace. The Sussex woods fill me with particular joy. Yesterday Mr GBT and my jolly good chum H accompanied me on a walk organised by the Sussex Wildlife Trust. A taster of what greeted us.

Plant indicators for ancient woodland. Moschatel [aka Town Hall Clock because of its 4 faces] and Yellow Archangel

Cuckoo Flower [aka Lords and Ladies], Stitchwort [my parents always call this Shirt Buttons] and Wood Anemone

Bank Haircap Moss [I think- please do correct me if I'm wrong. I like to learn!]

And finally new growth and catkins on a Hornbeam [this one was identified by another member in the group]

Just beautiful and topped off with sunshine. I shall show you a few of the non woodland goodies in part two.



  1. Lovely photos, Aril :) I too am a woman of the woodland.... who is currently stuck by the sea :( Sea's lovely too, but how I miss having a decent size patch of trees within walking distance :'(

  2. I like your part of the world too K....I lived just outside Norwich.


Just my cup of tea

 My only reason for showing this photo today is the utter gorgeousness of this tea cup and saucer. You can see it for yourself at the Wallac...
