Anemone

Wood anemone (Anemone nemorosa) is one of the earlier flowers of spring.  It white star-shaped flowers poke through the leaf litter underneath some of the more open parts of the wood.

The species is a good indicator of ancient woodland as it expands territory though root spread rather than seed.
