On our way back from Suffolk, on Monday 17th April, we stopped off at a Wildlife Trust National Nature Reserve near Stamford in Lincolnshire. The reserve is a site for the rare Pasqueflower which, at this time of year, grows alongside Cowslip, in what was once an old limestone quarry, used by the Romans over 1500 years ago. April and May is the best time to see Pasqueflower and there are now only a few sites left in England where we can enjoy this wonderful flower. A fitting end to the Easter weekend.
