West Runton-Flowering update

Foxglove in full flower

After a (little) warm weather and the recent rain, the woodland and heaths are alive with flowers in full blossom.

The property is home to an enormous range of flowers. 

But also keep an eye open for butterflies when the sun is shining, including White Admirals and the Silver-washed Fritillary.

You will have little difficulty spotting these flowers:-

Foxgloves

Foxgloves can be seen both in shady woodlands and on the heaths.
They flower from early summer to the autumn.
The tall flower spikes are produced in the plant's second year.
