Bank Haircap

I had an extremely slippery walk round Rice Wood this afternoon - I hadn't realised quite how muddy it would be, and had to leave the path at several points because it was impassable. There weren't that many woodland species in flower - mostly lesser celandines and primroses - but I was happy to find this clump of bank haircap, which is a local species round Peterborough, as it only grows in woodlands with mildly acidic soil. 

I spent the rest of the afternoon making a nut roast, as Lizzy was joining us for dinner. Sarah and Ben produced hummus and buffalo cauliflower for starters, and I threw together a rhubarb frangipane for dessert - it turned out to be quite a feast and a jolly time was had all round.
