10/4/2010: Wood Anemone wonder

I knew there were some Wood Anemones (Anemone nemorosa) in Bursted Wood (London Borough of Bexley), having found the leaves later in the season. OK I was living elsewhere for a long time, but I'm not sure quite how I failed to visit when the flowers were out. So I was impressed by the great areas of the woodland floor now clearly covered in dissected leaves, and studded with white flowers, in what is a modest-sized and very heavily used suburban wood.
