Little white flowers are popping up everywhere around Otley now, from Cow parsley,
Wild garlic and the pretty star-shapes of Greater stitchwort. They are joyful to accounted on a walk, I have spotted them along the old railway, by the river and around the East of Otley especially along woodland edges and hedgerows. When featured alongside the beautiful bluebell, also in bloom, they create a soothing woodland scene for the eyes. Later in the spring, when their seed capsules have ripened, they can be heard popping as they disperse their seeds.
