Walks & Wildflowers
Spring is now in full bloom here in Sark and the early wildflowers are at their best. The hedgerows and woodlands are bursting with primroses, red campion and bluebells and it appears that the cold weather this winter has been good for the celandines that have formed wonderful carpets of vibrant yellow as they hold their heads towards the sun. Sark Visitor Centre is now running Wildflower Fortnight with six guided walks in the first two weeks of May to appreciate the island’s fabulous flora and there is an exhibition on the same theme at the Centre. All of the walks start at 2pm and take place on May 1st, 4th, 5th, 6th, 8th and 11th. The weekly garden walks start in May every Friday beginning at the Visitor Centre at 2pm and carry on throughout the summer. There are rock pool rambles on May 28th, July 23rd and August 1st, 8th and 20th. La Seigneurie Gardens has a guided walk with one of the gardeners every Wednesday at 11.30. Guided walks around the Gardens for groups of six or more can also be booked in advance on any day of the week. For more information on any of these walks and to book a place call the Visitor Centre on 01481 832345 or email firstname.lastname@example.org.
