Wild Spring Flowers

The seedlings of the cornfield annuals sown along the path beside the Heritage Viewpoint, mostly Poppies and Corn Marigold, have survived the January frosts and are growing strongly in the recent warm weather. They will flower later, but nestling among them can be seen the bright pink flowers of Red Dead-nettle.
