Tussocks of Blue Moor Grass have steel=blue flowers that give pollen at Easter Tide. It's a plant of limestone grassland, rare nationally, abundant on Scout Scar. With days of warm spring weather its blue flowers open to pollinators. It's an early flowering grass, with blue flowers on anthills, little tussocks in a weave of vegetation. Later in summer its stems will grow tall.
Temperatures are so high this week I'm looking out for butterflies, although there are few flowers to offer them nectar. Blackthorn begins to flower. Yew tree flowers have pollen too. Synchronicity is key: the coincidence of flowers with insects to pollinate them.
