Yellow spring

Duration: 00:55

The primrose's name - prima rosa - means the first rose of spring. As spring arrives, wood anemones open with the sun and track its progress through the day. The yellow blooms of the lesser celandine carpet dark woods and hedgerows. Yellow is the predominant colour of spring flowers, beckoning the insects to indulge in their nectar.
