Montia

One of the joys of cycling in the woods at this time of year is that you can come across a spectacle such as in the photo below.  Montia sibirica is its name.  I remember the first time I saw it, growing under an oak tree in the English Lake District, not far from Tarn Hows.  It must have made an impression on me, because that was over 30 years ago.  But I have never seen it is quite such profusion as this. Spectacular!
