Spring in the woods in Flintshire

This was my first local group outing of the year - the Flintshire group visited a beautiful wood, where the owner has been clearing bramble along the paths, and it seems to have had good results with the ground flora. It was a beautiful day to be out in the woods.
This was the first early purple orchid of the year for me.
