This month lovely wood anemones carpet the floor of New Lanark’s woodland with a flush of starry white flowers. You can see these precious wild flowers, also known as Lady’s Nightcap, beside the Clearburn Natural Outdoor Play Area next to the Clyde Valley Nature Reserve at New Lanark. According to the charity Plantlife, wood anemones are a well-known indicator of ancient woodland as they spread very slowly from rootstocks rather than seeds. On the grassy bank below Caithness Row, the daffodils are giving a brilliant display just now. It won’t last, so come along soon and enjoy the fresh air and flowers!
