The Red, White and Blue

Red, white and blue in the Dene

Early Spring in the Breamish Valley seems to be dominated by yellow: great stretches of coconut-smelling gorse follow the course of the River Breamish and now it’s showing up in the flower heads of the oil seed rape in the fields around us.

But other colours are now beginning to participate: reds, whites and blues in particular are now easy to spot.

Another brief walk along the green Dene and there they are:

Red campion (Silene dioica)
White campion (Silene latifolia)
Bluebell (Hyacinthoides non-scripta)

A particularly blue Dene
