    Memorable walks included one along a wooded farm track, lined with shade-loving plants that included Lamium orvala , Herb Paris, Solomon’s Seal and hellebores and helleborines, while the adjacent meadow was dotted with the bright yellow flowers of Senecio scopolii and the first few spring gentians.
