Wild Irish Flowers
The Wild Orchid can be found in the Cavan Hedgerows at the moment. They don’t grow in large numbers but with their bright pink colour they are very pretty and easy to spot among the bluebells and primroses.
Wild Flowers in Cavan’s Hedgerows
Our very cold winter has not effected the wild flowers in the hedgerows this Spring, in fact they seem to be doing better than ever. Primroses, Violets, Bluebells, Buttercups, Rocket and a white flower(don’t know the name) are flowering away in great displays.
Took a walk through Killykeen Forest Park, outside Cavan Town last Sunday such a beautiful spot. Lots of bird life, wild flowers such as primroses and bluebells. We spotted hundreds of tadpoles in one of little streams along the walk. Walks are well mapped out on signs and are of varying lengths and grades, there is something to suit everyone.
There is one wild flower you cannot miss in County Cavan at the moment , and that is the Bluebell, in places it is just like a blue carpet flowing through woodlands and hedgerows alike. The Bluebell combined with the Primrose makes a lovely contrast.
