Golden Saxifrage

This was one of those rare moments of awe in the ordinary. Whilst out for a walk I paused as I often do by the river to take in the movement and see who is darting around. As I turned around I was struck by the beauty of a natural green wall. The crumbling wall by the river at Wharfebank Mills has been colonised by a variety of wild green plants, one in particular glistened and almost glowed in the light, the opposite leaved golden-saxifrage. This is a creeping perennial of wet, shady places, out west where it is more common it forms incredible mats of golden-green flowers..
